Hawks v Freo

Yesterday we went to our first live Hawthorn game for the season at Aurora Stadium.   Kobe hung out with Steph, Chloe and Hugh at Treasure Island (thanks Steph!) and Eden and Lachie joined us, sitting in Aaron and Noah's seats as we have a family membership.   It was nice to have them there with us, and I laughed with Eden saying how the whole mood at the game was completely different, as Aaron would always be so into the game and stressed, so I felt like I couldn't talk to him the whole time. 

All I could think about was Aaron and how he would've been loving it.  I pulled out one of his geurnseys and scarves and wore it to the game. It's so strange to pull them out of the drawer and wonder if Aaron would be upset if I wore a certain one (he was very particular about looking after his clothes!), and then remembered that it didn't really matter anymore which one I wore, as they are all mine now anyway.

Harri is turning out to be a man after my own heart, and brought along our little point and shoot camera and took photos during the game. I love that he loves taking pics :)

He wouldn't leave 'Nono' at home so he came and enjoyed the game with us.

Jay (like me and Lachie) enjoyed the food more than the footy, but it was a fun day and it was nice to have Eden and Lachie there with us.  It wasn't the same as having Aaron belt out the Hawthorn theme song at the end when they won, but I know he was probably there in spirit, singing 'we're a happy team at Hawthorn'.


  1. Hat's off to you for keeping the boys and yourself busy. Good for the spirit I would think. I love your necklace pendant, just beautiful.

  2. You look so beautiful in the picture that has your profile. What a fun night, but I am so sad not to see Aaron AND Noah at the game with you.

  3. I agree with Becky. Great pic of you!


  4. Hi Lisa - I have been reading your blog for some time now but have not been brave enough to comment until now. I am so very sorry for your losses - losing your son was beyond my understand - losing Aaron....well there are no words for that. I recently lost my only child in March (Jonathan, age 24) when his apartment caught fire. Now I am a member of this horrible club of moms who have lost their child. Some days I wonder how I will manage hour to hour. It is a hard path God has placed me on. You have been an inspiration to me - I keep thinking 'If Lisa can do this, so can I".

    I hope you don't mind me asking.....I have been searching for a necklace that I can have to honor my son's memory. When I saw this picture of yours, it took my breath away. Was it a gift from someone? If so, they picked a lovely design. I would love to know where it was heart goes out to you and your boys as your travel this new and scary road together. I hope Noah was at heaven's gate when my precious boy entered....I am praying for you every day.

    God Bless....
