Family Excitement


I am finally able to share the excitement our family experienced last weekend.  Our little girl won a prize!!  The prize - to run out with the Brisbane Lions {AFL or Aussie Rules} last Saturday night.  She was so excited when she was told, and I believe hardly slept until the big night.  The prize package included accommodation and a lovely breakfast the next morning, for the family, and a number of chosen friends.  She chose to take her best friends from school [all from the one family], and I believe they all had a fabulous time and would not have missed it for anything.  What a great experience for her, something to look back on later in her life.  The teams and their sponsors are to be congratulated for such opportunities.  She also received her own jersey, shorts and socks as you will see.  An exciting night for them.  This is really the only photograph I can share, so I hope it is clear enough.

Linda, what a thrill for your little one. As you say she will remember it always. 3 of my grandchildren have been on the MCG to form guards of honour before particular matches. To lead the team onto the field is a real thrill.

By the way we don't have jerseys in AFL we have jumpers. Just saying. lol
