New Haircuts...New Kids?

So in preparation for school, which begins on Tuesday, I took the kids to have their hair cut. I knew I wanted Rebekah's to be cut into a shoulder length bob so that it would be easier to take care of in the morning and not require "hair pretties" (since she NEVER leaves them in). I love Beka's and pulled up with little clips on the sides, it's adorable!! But I was in for a shocker when it was Thomas's turn and he announced he wanted his hair to be like his friend Chaz's. That meant all of his beautiful, thick hair...gone!! I took a deep breath, looked at Tina our stylist, gave the go-ahead and said a silent prayer. I'm not sure if it was for me or him or what, but I said one anyways. I'm still not sure about the new be honest I think I'm in mourning for the last vestige of little boy that there was. Not that he was a little boy, even with the longer hair, but somehow it just feels like my baby boy is gone. All with the snip, snip of a stylists shears. You haircuts; new older looking kids?

Summer is flying by...

and school will be here before we know it. Woo Hoo!! Can you tell I'm excited about that? I actually printed off supply lists yesterday and am planning trips for each of my kiddos to do some special school shopping in the "big" city, aka Anchorage.

We've been staying busy attending VBS's, going to swimming lessons,

Thomas played outdoor soccer,

we've been fishing & camping...

all those things we do during our few short months of summer. And talk about a FABULOUS summer. This is the best one I can remember in a long time...beautiful sunshine and lots of warm temps. It'll be hard to see it go.

Hope you enjoy the pics...
