Little Heart Heroes

Friday evening we participated with the Little Heart Heroes and the Bishop Kelley Football team in raising awareness for congenital heart defects. Gavin had a blast and loved his football player Mr. Tate. Gavin was quite the entertainer again, can you guess?!? HE DANCED! Then he chatted it up with Tate and showed him all of his referee calls, football team chants, etc. Before heading out to the field Gavin informed me that he did not want Adam or I to go out on the field with him... "I do it myself" were his words, aww he is growing up to fast! When they went out on the field to get recognition for being a CHD survivor, Tate was showing him some football stretches and Gavin actively repeated everything. Overall the night was a success! It was a definite tear jerker though; to see all of the survivors on the field and then to watch 8 balloons go in the air in memory of our CHD angels. My heart goes out to each and every one of those families that lost their child in this battle. They are always in our prayers!

Gavin had a great time and was so pumped about it that he woke up the next morning telling one of our family friends about his "big football game" the night before.

I love the Little Heart Hero's tshirts. I'm assuming that Little Heart Heros is a local support group. I like how they are bringing awareness of CHD at a football game. I wish we had more things like that here in Nashville.
