Augustana's Kick Off Kid 11/16/2013.....

....was Aiden! Because Aiden is seen at Sanford Children's Hospital, and because Troy and I know the person at Sanford who works with Augie to arrange said kid, Aiden was chosen. To be honest, Aiden was terrified. All the "job" entailed, really, was walking out to the coin toss at mid-field. Even though the Augie captains were painfully sweet (and would probably be mortified to be described that way), and they all came over to say hi to Aiden and got down on his level -- physically -- he refused to go alone, so Dad had to accompany him. Troy said Aiden was so scared, he was physically shaking the entire time. Out he did go, though, brave kid. When it was all said and done, he loved it! Now, had Ethan been chosen, he would have led those captains out onto the field. Those two are an exercise in contrasts to be sure. Be that as it may, they're getting to be very close, and today they played together ALL DAY without one fight. It is sweet to watch their relationship develop. Now, if we could just get two days in a row. Haahaha! Ah well, we'll take what we can get. And it just gets better every day!
