To complete our week, backwards, I will end with Memorial Day.
This year because of Dave’s travel schedule and he and I travelling and some undone projects we did not spend the day with my extended Tanner family. We were able to sneak away to the park for a picnic and the kids had a heyday in the freezing cold creek. Audra ended up getting soaking wet and loved every second of it. It was a lovely family outing.
And since Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, I decided some new haircuts were in order. Have I mentioned that I taught myself how to cut my boy’s hair? Seriously one of the scariest and most rewarding things I’ve done. There have a been a few mistakes along the way, but I think I’m pretty good and I enjoy learning to do new things as a mom. Even though Audra definitely does not need her hair cut, I read somewhere that cutting even a small amount off will help the hair to grow. I know, I don’t get it either but decided it was worth a shot. Plus her hair had a few extra long stragglers that I wanted to even out. She loved finally getting to participate in the hair cutting. And Little E begged to participate. Yeah, that lasted like 30 seconds so thank goodness his hair is curly and you can’t tell :-).
New haircuts, two working arms, and a huge hole in the backyard —- yep it’s time for Summer!
