Justin had not had a haircut for a year! He was finally ready to cut it off and was tired of how long it took to wash it. (plus he had an appt with the bishop to start on his mission papers)
It ended up being quite a traumatic experience for me. I've always cut his hair but this time was tough. It was hard cutting off all those beautiful curls. I didn't even know where to start so I just stared cutting off big chunks of hair until most of it was gone and I could do a regular hair cut. Cutting it meant a lot of things and the hardest part was thinking about him being gone for 2 years. I'm excited for him to serve a mission but there sure are a lot of mixed feelings for me personally.
