Planting The Garden And A Haircut

Life continues as normal as it gets here at our house. Hopefully we should be done with school in the next couple of weeks.  Ahh, summer break! We are all looking forward to it.

I finally got my garden planted on Memorial Day! Now let's hope that it does well. I changed it a bit from last year. I will post pictures when things start to sprout. I bought some flowers to put in some pots and a little bit in the ground. Hopefully I will get to those tomorrow.

The excitement for this week is Anna got a big-time hair cut. It has been about 2 years since her last haircut and this is her third hair cut in her 8+ years of life. She wanted to donate it, so we found a Salon that participates with Locks of Love. We have been talking about doing this for a few weeks and I finally got my nerve up to do it! I love her long hair, but it will be easier to take care of. Since it is naturally curly it can be really fun combing it out. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Kim put her hair in several ponytails to cut it off.

Almost there.

All done!

What a cutie pie!

I started writing this post a few days ago. Since then many things have started sprouting up in my garden. I will try to get out there today and take pictures. I did not get the flowers planted into the pots yet though. Hopefully that will happen today or tomorrow.

Please remember Baby Vance in your prayers. The last update from his Grandma was things were going pretty well.

Also please keep Danielle in your prayers. Today she is to have on Amnio to see if Baby Seth's lungs are developed enough so that she can be induced. Pray for a healthy baby and delivery.

I love her haircut a lot cooler for summer. I have very thick hair. Wow , that was really long.

I wish I could plant a little garden but this isn't the best place for one the grass hardly grows here. When I lived in Ohio I did. Nothing better than fresh from the garden.

I'm praying for everyone today and always.

Beautiful pics too.
Have a nice Monday !!!

What beautiful curls! I call those kind of big curls "Princess Curls." She looks so cute with her new haircut! And how wonderful to donate her hair to Locks of Love.

Adding Danielle and Baby Vance to my prayers!
