history (again) and a haircut

So I have decided to NOT study Texas History with the boys next year. Thanks for all of your (y'alls?) input! I think we will focus on Guam and WW2 history found there and in the surrounding islands. I can't wait!

Speaking of history, I revisited an old hairstyle from several years ago. Here is my new do:

A little sassier than when it was long.

My hair was last cut like this back in the day...

August 4, 2008

The boys and I were trying to figure out my new laptop webcam. We took some snapshots and even a video clip to send to David while he was on a trip. :)

It's strange how I even associated my haircut with that time period. I never thought grief would extend its fingers into so many small details of my life and that something as simple as a haircut would require emotional preparation.

I am thankful for an understanding family and a husband who loves me enough to walk through the details with me. {I'm glad he likes my haircut too!}

P.S. I have no idea what "related" video links are going to display at the end of the video clip... so just ignore them.

"Daddy went to the Mall of America today."....long silence...."I don't even know what that is!"


Love hearing the voices of your kids. :)

Cute hair btw. My daughter Rachel just got that cut last week. It's SASSY.

Hi Marsha!

Love your haircut. I've been wearing the same cut for a couple of years and do love it. I'm growing it out now, though, so we'll see how that works out.

You have such a wonderful hubby and boys...truly a gift from God.

Love seeing your video - so precious!!

Love you - Julie

Glad you were able to make a decision! LOVE the hair, but will spank you if I ever see another picture with that beautiful camera and it's most important part- THE STRAP, not on some part of your body. Wrap it around your wrist AT THE LEAST! It only takes one drop and it's GONE.

Sweet sweet memories

Christine said...

I love your haircut! I definitely would choose that for myself except that J likes longer hair. SO I try to please both of us. :D I loved that video too. I sure miss that cutie patootie. I love you!!!!!!

Denise said...

Hey Marsha!

Love the hair!

You'll be happy to know that the Guam Homeschoolers put on a great Chamorro Day event every October. Also, you can find some good lesson plans at:

A new walking trail in the capital opened up recently. The homeschoolers are talking about doing a walking tour field trip but haven't yet.

Get excited! See you in the summer!

beautiful... I hope I get to see it up close here soon! :)


Jen said...

The new (old) hair cut is cute! And, I'm so glad you decided to study local history while there in Guam - I love doing that with my kids when we get the chance, and getting to do it in another country altogether would be the ultimate!

Faith said...

You look great, as always! The pics are wonderful. I will have to watch the video from my Mac later. The iPad won't let me. Sigh.
