Sorry it's been so long. My computer isn't working and I keep having to steal Jacob's for short time periods. Here is a quick update until I get a new cord for my computer.

Jacob is doing great in school and is heading to Washington DC soon for an ADEA meeting. After his second quarter grades came in the teacher wrote that he had "appropriate grades for a curriculum rep" meaning he is doing pretty dang good (not to brag or anything but I just think he is so smart).

I just finished my third week in cosmetology school and today cut my first guests hair. I was pretty nervous but it went great. I am going to school at the Cinta Aveda Institute and it is an 11 month program. I will learn how to cut, color, and style hair, wax eyebrows, apply make-up, and know the basics of giving a manicure and a pedicure.  We are required to wear all black so if you see me dressed this way it is not because I have gone goth. Below is a picture of part of the cutting floor (sorry it's so small). They keep the beginning students in the basement so I am excited for when I get to move up to a room with windows.

Besides that everything is pretty normal.

Ya I remember those first like 6 weeks of just book work and learning. It's not the funnest but it gets better. I think that's why I still wear a lot of black because I'm so used to it from work and school. It's ok. You can never go wrong with black. Have fun and don't let your clients see that you are nervous, just act like you know what your doing and they will be fine :) Can't wait to hear your stories!!! Oh, this is K-L, not Jon!
