{Locks of Love}

Kamrin decided the other day that she wanted to cut her hair....She had grown it for so long and I was a little  hesitant to let her do it.  I thought that she would probably want her hair back quickly and that wasn't going to happen.  But, she then told me that she had heard of a place that you could cut your hair and send it to help make wigs for cancer patients.  She really wanted to cut her hair in order to do just that.  So, we went to JC Penny's and they measured her hair, they told her that she had 11 inches which was enough.  While getting her hair cut she was asked why she wanted to donate her hair.  She said in her very grown up voice that cancer was just a part of her life (Josh's mom has breast cancer currently) and that doing this made her feel like she was helping someone like her grandma. After getting it cut we took the ponytail to the cancer center at the hospital and Kamrin got to deliver it there.  She was very proud of herself and so was I!!
