I had promised Jack and Chad a haircut that night and Nixin insisted that he needed one too. He didn't think it was fair that all of the boys in our family got to have short summer haircuts but him. He had just fallen and I was full of sympathy for the poor kid, so....
I did it! I cut his hair really short and he LOVES it. I love it too. The morning after the haircut, when we were styling his hair, he was shouting about how "awesome my spikes look!" I did make him promise and cross his heart that he would grow his curls back when school starts up again.
So, we planned a school's out for summer party. Jack decided that he wanted the theme of the party to be "No Girls Allowed." His last day of school he took invitations to this buddies in his kindergarten class and then we invited a couple of his favorite friends from our old neck of the woods to come along too. Nixin didn't exactly think it was fair that Jack got to invite friends and he didn't, so I let him pick 3 friends to invite as well.
Blake, Max, Caleb, Cole, Nixin, Jack S., Jack W., Zachary, Brandon, and Dorian
I walked into the living room about 20 minutes after the last guest left and my little Nixin was zonked. What a sweet heart!

I love my dad, Rob. He is loving and caring and has taken on such a big role as "the parent" in my life. He has been a good example to me. I always have a great time when I am around him. He has made many sacrifices on my behalf and I appreciate them all. Thanks Dad for all that you have done for me!
Chad's dad, Ken, is so much fun to be around. We all love him so much. He has welcomed me into their family and I am thankful to have him in my life. He raised me this wonderful son to have as my husband, and I will forever be in debt to him for that.
Happy Father's Day Dads! We love you.

Nixin came into my room this morning and laid in bed with me while the two of us tried our best to get moving. We had the following conversation:
Nixin: What day is today?
Nixin: Does that mean that you have hair today?
Erica: No, Thursday is my day off. We don't have anything that we have to do today.
Nixin: Can we go on a date?
Erica: Sure, what would you like to do for our date?
Nixin: Hmmm...We should go to Target and let me buy a toy with your card.
The funny thing, or totally scary thing, about that is that Nixin loves to swipe my debit card. The last time that I let him do it, he said "Wait mom, I can do it. I know what numbers to push." And he did!!! The little stinker knows my pin #!
So, we went to the store and I let him buy a toy. He chose a police officer set and has been playing it ever since we got home. I love dates with Nixin!

Last week the kindergartners put on their program. It was really cute and Jack sang right along which made Chad and I very happy. Great job Jack!
