Friday Night Footy

Friday night footy was something that Harri and Aaron loved watching together.  Harri is missing it a lot and has been thinking a lot about it this week in particular.  He cried during the week saying how much he missed it because it was their special thing they did together.  This afternoon he came out of school with a card that he hade made for Aaron.

He said he wanted to take it to Aaron's grave, but didn't want it to get wet, so he decided he will put it in Aaron's special box at home.  I told him that was a good idea as I'm sure Aaron was watching him make it and would've seen it already.

Harri hasn't been into the footy as much since Aaron died, but when the Hawks play we love to watch the game together, and it's even better when it's at night as we can put on our Hawks PJs and dressing gowns.   I have inherited Aaron's.

It is not the same watching it with me, but Harri gets excited when we do it together.  I'm definitely not into it like Aaron was (although I have actually been known to yell a little at the TV this season which surprised Jay!).

I find myself wearing Aaron's Hawks jumper all the time too. It's really comfy but I love wearing it mostly because it makes me feel closer to him.  I can hear Aaron now 'you look SO hot in that!' (and he would be serious! :) I wish so much that Aaron was here to wear his Hawks gear himself and was here tonight watching Friday night footy with Harri. 

p.s thank you to everyone who subscribed to Jalen's YouTube channel yesterday.  It totally made his day to get so many subscribers - actually it probably made his month :)


  1. I will have to join you both in my Hawks .p.Js as well.

    I am very vocal!!.,
    Love Mum.

  2. Harri is such a sweetheart. I'm glad you keep that tradition alive for him. Love the Hawks pjs.

  3. How apt that I have just come to read your blog, and the Hawks have just won the weekend game and shot to the top of the ladder. Woo hoo! I hope you watched and enjoyed the win.


We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
