I wasn't the only one who got a haircut this week (thanks for noticing!) - Sam is currently enjoying the first professional haircut of his 9 good-looking years. His precise instructions were, "Basically the same, only 3 or 4 inches shorter." which is less helpful than you might think.
But after considerable hemming and hawing, his haircutter and I decided to just stick with the same style, only shorter. Just like he said in the first place :)
