Guard of Honour
We got a lovely surprise this week, when Tash (who works on the kids ward at our local hospital) contacted us to ask if Harri would like to be in the guard of honour as the Hawks ran through the banner, before they played the Eagles on the weekend.
He was very excited and I reminded him how lucky he was to be able to do it, because he got to run through the banner last year. The kids who were a part of the guard of honour got to lead the 'Hawk walk' from City Park to Aurora Stadium.
At Aurora Stadium we met up with lots of the volunteers who were raising money for Give Me Five For Kids. It was their game to raise money at, which is why the hospital got to choose the children who were part of the guard of honour at this game.
The Hawthorn football club put this photo up on Instagram. We were excited to spot Harri in it (and of course it's lovely to have Hodgey in it too! :)
Kobe absolutely loved the game, and chattered away the whole time about the players and what was going on.
