A New Look

At the beginning of November, Joel shaved his head, beard, everything for "no-shave November" at school. It was a, well, um, interesting look. But that look didn't last long as his hair started growing in.

And growing.

And growing.

By the middle of November I was really "over it"--especially the mustache. As we went into Thanksgiving week I was just counting the days, the hours, until he would shave again.

And then he started threatening to keep it. But I knew he didn't really mean that because he was started to get "blistering" on his upper lip from his mustache being so long. I think that was God's gift to me to insure he would shave it.

So, here he was last night at the end of the month. Honestly, the pictures don't even come close to showing the true nastiness of it all.

I'm just glad it's gone.

One of our friends wanted Joel to keep his beard and mustache.
So we took a picture before the infamous mustache was removed.
