What a great Thursday! It’s exciting to be one day closer to a fast-paced weekend!
We started the day off at Aloha Stadium for a field rehearsal. It was a little toasty today, but nothing could keep me from smiling and having the best time possible. Aloha Stadium is definitely an amazing place and am looking forward to gameday!
As soon as we finished at the stadium, my group (part of the NFC) was taken to Pearl Harbor to participate in a Play 60 event. This was, by far, one of my favorite events so far. The kids that we met were just as excited to see us as they were to see the football players! While we were there, we performed for them and taught a dance clinic.
The end of the clinic is what stood out the most to me though. We got to have a Q & A session with them and it really gave the kids a chance to get to know us on a more personal level. These kids were so appreciative that we were there for them and I will never forget what one of the girls told me. She was the happiest and sweetest little girl and she came up to us and said, “We really appreciate you guys and want to thank you so much for coming here to hang out with us. We had so much fun and I will never forget this.” Its times like these that make me realize how much I love my job.
After such an amazing event I honestly didn’t think that day could get any better. We ended up finishing the night with a great team dinner at Dave and Busters. We spent the time laughing, reminiscing and bonding. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.
So, unitl tomorrow…….. Aloha!
