first day

kindergarten, here he comes!  when i took him he told me "go away, mom, stop following me."  he was slightly grumpy - i had to tell him to be grumpy to get that smile out of him... but i'm so proud of that little dude.  it's amazing how much older they look by just sticking a backpack on their back, i mean, come on, really?

basically the reason this kid hasn't had a hair cut in a while is because he didn't want one.  i didn't feel like arguing and he sure looked cute anyway.  he was actually excited to get his hair cut and ready for that new change and he loves his short hair now.  my niece, christina, is at evan's hairstyling college and she is doing so great over there!  jorel said "i like christina's hair cuts because they are so nice and smooth!"  she did say that we were going to cut all that hair off and he responded "so it's going to look like grandpa ron's?!"  he was a little concerned...

temple day for sam

sam's mission call is to jackson, mississippi and today was the day that he went through the temple.  those of us that haven't gone through met him when he came out.  i think the kid lost about 10 pounds in the temple because when he came out he looked like a skinny kid!  he has worked so hard to be ready for his mission and he is going to be such a great missionary!  he is seriously such a neat kid!
