He screams and cries, and the ladies refuse to cut his hair. His last hack job, I did the best I could over the span of two days during bath time. One day we were with Aunt Jamie, and Bodhan said he would let her cut his hair. I was so excited.. Now he loves Aunt Jamie., and I love Aunt Jamie even more. She cuts his hair; there are no more fights., and no more shaggy, mop headed Bodhan, just beautiful Brown eyed Bodhan. | Hair, Hair, Hair | March | 2011

24: Rock | Family
25: Climbing | adventures
26: continued . . . .
27: Our kids love being outdoors. Hal was really excited to show them how to rock climb, and they were eager to learn. They all tried their best and over came their fears. It was very impressive to watch. However, we realized that our family is still a little young for safe rock climbing adventures. We had wonderful memories of hiking through dense thorny bushes to find a trail, hiking up steep terrain, with kids and gear in hand and for Hal and I to properly "place" and "clean" our gear on the rock. Those experiences were physically challenging, but felt awesome to over come. As our children grow, I hope that we can make this a safe, fun, family activity. I hope we will all learn to face our challenges with courage, to push ourselves higher, and bask in the joy of reaching the Goal.
