free speech of hair style


well, we finally gave in and let Ben choose how he wanted his hair cut....with a little bit of compromise. he's been asking for a couple of years to have a mohawk, and being the "conservative" folks we are, we've always said no. well he's recently been growing it out, because he wanted hair like Troy Bolton (High School Musical). well, it was getting long, and hot for summer, and a little shaggy. So I "convinced" him that he should cut it for summer and the wedding that he's in. Then he asked, "well can I get a mohawk?" I wish you all could've seen his face when I said, "sure, why not; there's only a week left of school." So, it's a modified, agreed upon mohawk. short, but not shaved on the sides, and terribly long down the middle section.

it's only hair, I figure, and there are certainly worse things that he could want to do.

Wow! What a cool dude! You are so right - it is only hair. So I've been checking every couple days since the ice cream truck only to find the ice cream truck again. Ok- so I don't have the whole blog thing down yet! I had it saved wrong. Someday I'll be up to speed. I'll show Autumn Ben's cool hair when she gets home. I can hear it now "Ben! What is he doing?" I'll let you know if I'm right. J

Vicki, didn't you learn anything from when my dad let Austin decide on his haircut? Don't you remember how bad it turned out? Haha, Ben's is a lot better than that though, he almost looks like chuck liddel with that mohawk.
