Crazy Hair Day x 2

I love Crazy Hair Day! It's the one day that I get to play with the boys hair! For those of you who are not the only female in the house this maybe hard to understand. This is the daily routine of "doing a boys hair":
1. spray with water
2. comb down the roosters
3. you're done
There are no requests for pigtails, ponytails, french braids, ribbons, barrettes, or headbands. The only request I get is "Are you done yet?"
So crazy hair day at school is always marked on the calendar with an idea of what crazy thing I can do to their hair and this year I officially got to do two of them!

Almost Double Digits

It's hard to believe that 9 years ago we were bringing home our first child! It seems like so long ago when I compare it to what we started from but when I look at Jackson it seems like just a few days ago instead of 9 years. I remember sitting in the back seat of the car not wanting to get out because I didn't think I was old enough or wise enough to bring a baby home and raise him. Somedays now that feeling still comes back. Then I get out of the car and witness this amazing, talented, smart, wise, and humorous boy and think of all I would have missed had I not gotten out of the car! Jackson, I am so proud to be your mom, to laugh at your humor, to be told I didn't do the math problem right and to be in awe of God's creation in you! Happy Birthday almost double digits!
