Carter has escaped a few haircuts this summer. Each & every time it was "his turn" to line up for a haircut, Carter would say "No thanks". He was firm about it too. He told us that he wanted to grow is hair out for his 1st soccer tournament of the season. What???

So, my cute 8 year old boy walks out of the bathroom looking like this yesterday!
Here is the soccer playing, rock star.

I had heard mention of a faux hawk for this tournament... but this is a full on Mohawk. I got a good chuckle out of his new style & am thankful he is a boy! One more haircut & we can take care of that hawk :-)!

We sat out in the 105 degree weather (in Folsom) for 5 hours today! It was hotter than HOT! Despite the heat, Carter had an awesome game. He scored two goals in the first game & was a great defensive player. It is so much fun to watch him play. The coach knows he can count on Carter to play his best wherever he plays on the field. They won their first game by 2 & lost their last by one goal. Way to go team Battle.

I am looking forward to the new soccer season but am not looking forward to the heat.

You are such a good mom! First of all you laughed at the new "look" for the tournament. Then you actually sat in this heat to watch it? PROPS to you! You are great!

FYI - I saw John at Walmart and he was unable to find the otterpops that your family likes. They still have them! They are on the bottom shelf, below the other otter pops...sitting right there in their little mesh bags. You need them in this heat!
