I'm not sure how or when it happened but my son will turn 21 on Sunday. I can't be old enough to have a 21 year old... I only feel about 25 myself.

Since on Saturday he will be leaving for Canada for a month on a wilderness survival Campus Crusade trip, we celebrated his birthday tonight. And since he is leaving for the wilderness, he decided to get a mohawk. It's going to take some getting used to for me, but I've never been one to fuss about external things that do not matter.

It kind of reminds me of another of his birthdays ... when he was in 5th grade his birthday fell on the last day of school. To celebrate he wanted to do something wild with his hair so we dyed it green. It's something he will always rememeber because he was asked to leave school when he arrived with green hair. The principal asked him if his mother knew about it and he replied, "she did it". Opps. I didn't know they had a rule about green hair. Oh well, we've had a lot of laughs about it.

I could write a long post all about how proud I am of him but I'm his mom and that all goes without saying. He's an amazing guy. Never given us a minute of trouble. Is going into ministry and has a passion for God that puts me to shame. But I still can't believe he's 21.

Ok, when I read mohawk I was picturing something like what Mr. T had (remember him!)

Your son looks great with this cut! I like it, it has some style to it.

You must have only been about 14 when you had him cause you look about 35.
