This week I’m headed back to the midwest to my homestate of Minnesota to enjoy the last few days of pre-school, pre-winter fun in the sun with the family! I haven’t been back since this spring and it will be good to see the fam AND check in on my sisters’ Keagan and Skya’s loc progress.
8 year old Skya had her locs put in [on her own volition] back in November, so we’re just shy of her 1 year mark. While she’s experienced a lot of growth in the past year, rumor has it she’s also had a summer filled with pool time, sunshine, and summer camp, so probably not so much regular loc upkeep. I’ll get you all up to speed on this soon-to-be third grader’s growth progress and her back to school routine.
Then there is my sister Keagan whose story I shared with you all a few months ago regarding her developmental disabilities and how they tie into her hair choices. Keagan had locs for about 5 years, but back in May had them chopped off to start anew! This big step was a very exciting moment for Keagan as she loved her “small hair” and excitedly shared as much with her teachers and classmates. Keag’s about to start 6th grade next week so we’ll be checking in on what has worked for her and her 4 month old TWA.
As for me, I’m about to head into a MONTH of being on the road and Minnesota is just the beginning. You’re about to hear of a lot of adventures on the road and we’ll see how Lola holds up as I take her on yet another adventure!
