Haircuts and a House Update

Again, sorry for the poor picture quality, but I'm still limited to taking pictures with just my phone. (Oh, and the stick is a Valentine sucker, which he had in his mouth while reading this book to his brother. He's almost as addicted to reading as his older brother, and is definitely as addicted to sweets as his older sister.)

This weekend the boys all got haircuts. The 6 year old wanted to look like his older brother, so the sides of his head are practically shaved, with just very short hair on top. I left a little longer hair on the two year old. He looks so different even with it just clipped normally. I really think he looks better with longer hair, but as much as he hates to have it cut, I figured I better make it shorter. He is still terrified of the clippers. We bought a quieter set hoping that would help, and I think it did once we got into it. The old ones were very loud. But the minute he saw me holding clippers, even before I turned them on, he went into hysterics. Maybe next time will be better. But who knows. The next day I was trimming a few of the long hairs we missed, just using scissors, and he scowled at me and said, "Not nice!"

We have good news on the home-front. Friday our well driller called to tell me he was finished drilling. The well only needed to be 110 feet (we were expecting as much as 140, so this is great news.) He also told me that we have enough water to do whatever we want with it. It is odorless and tasteless too, so yeah! good clean water!!

Then yesterday I got an email from our house mover saying he thinks he can get it out here mid-March. I wrote back to him to let him know the sooner the better, because once this snow starts melting, the bottom will go out of the lot. Right now, with everything frozen solid, I think we could place it fairly easily. Even our pothole filled road is fairly level from the snow right now. But once it starts getting wet, we will have a mucky mess. Not that I really expect it to be that warm in March, but he did reply that he is going to try to get it out here this month instead of waiting until March. He says they have the axles and wheels under it, and have all the brick removed, so hopefully we can get this done. But like I've said before, I'll believe it when I see the house. Anyway, it gives us cause to be hopeful :)
