It was a weird feeling to be doing it again, knowing how things were at the same time last year. It was just a few weeks after Noah passed away and we were sad to be doing it without him, but happy at the same time that we could do it as a family for him.
Last year Noah wasn't with us, and this year Noah AND Aaron wasn't with us. It's still strange to say that. This morning I was organising our bibs to put them on and I pulled four out and put them on the bench and kept thinking that there was one missing. It just didn't seem like enough. And it wasn't. It's so strange to see that my family on earth is now just four people.
The day started off with the kids 400m race around Aurora Stadium. Kobe was so excited that Hawka was there to help them warm up.
the Woodwards join us this year, as they were away living in the USA last year.
Mum giving me a big wave.
alen a helicopter ride last year, and this year Kobe was lucky to get one. My boys are very spoilt and I am so grateful to people who show so much kindness to them, as they have had so much sadness in such a short time.
Kobe however didn't appreciate the gesture quite as much as I did and tThe little rat yelled 'I don't want it!' when they gave him the voucher and whacked Harri with it, and Harri quickly said that he would have it instead! Supposedly Jay and Harri are going to take it together. I'm nervous that Harri will get scared and will need me with him, but we will see what happens.
The boys were so excited to get a medal for participating. Kobe said to me tonight 'did you get a medal Mum, even though you were slow!?'.
