Aaron was next, and I chose a longer guard it is better but don't look too close. I was really disappointed to cut off all of their sun bleached hair. People pay big money for the color they got naturally from the sun!
Erik was not at all happy that it was time to cut his hair and I experimented with the ear guard so he has a nice little bald spot right above his ear (oops). He was at Grandma's house last time the boys got a cut so his hair was really long (secretly, I kinda liked it but I know it was overdue).
I really do not like the learning curve but, I guess with time and practice I might be able to do a haircut that looks good.
Today was our first official day of homeschooling! I have been working on a schedule for the children and I for a while now. I have done it with much resistance but knowing that our days would go better if we all knew what to expect instead of the way I have schooled in the past. I posted our schedule on the wall with neat little colored squares for each person. I left some open so I could change and adjust as needed. We did fairly well today, I know what I will be changing for tomorrow. It is REALLY difficult for me to start my day at 6am but it went much better so here's to discipline on my part.
Last night when I was reading I came across this quote from Dave Pelzer, "In the final analysis, it's up to you. At the end of the day it is you and you alone who has to make things happen. The cold hard truth is outside influences can only help you so far. The drive has to come from within you. You have to apply what you have learned on a daily basis."
I know I need to have a schedule and stick to it, I know I need to be disciplined in all areas of my life and I need to choose to do that on a daily basis.
I am excited about our new schedule and our subjects we are learning this year! Now, I am off to take a short nap (which is not in the schedule but needed to make it through the rest of the day)!
