Last Home Game

It was a beautiful day, cold but beautiful.  Daniel and I drove up to Logan for the last home game of the season and Naki's last home game ever.  It's was most definitely bitter sweet to see Naki take the field for the last time.  It was a day of lasts in a way, which made me tear up several times.  I would like to take this moment though and tell Naki just how proud I am of him.  He has worked so hard these last five years, he's grown and matured in so many ways.  I have been honored with the privilege of supporting him along this journey and I've appreciated every moment of it.  Naki you are an inspiration to me in so many ways and I'm so proud to be your big sis.  I love you buddy!

Here are some pics from our lovely day and click here to see some of my Aggie posts throughout the year.  
The kiddies watching Uncle Naki warm up before the game.

The team lined up on the field and cheered the seniors out onto the field.  I won't lie, I totally started crying at this point.  Mom, Dad and Lindsie were at the end of the line up to meet Naki.

Fia and Scott; Fia made over 20 candy lei's for Naki.  Amazing!

Here I am crying again.  This was really the perfect ending to an amazing chapter of our lives.  Go Aggies!
