It’s been a wonderful week of sun and fun here in Minnesota with the family. As I promised last week, I’ve got some updates for you on Skya’s loc progress. When I first saw her, I was totally impressed by how they’re looking. Her locs were started from braids last November and they’re finally turning a corner where youre seeing less braid and more solid loc.

Skya's locs now! See how the braid pattern is a lot less noticeable (if at all)?
After three months of swimming and sun you can also really see how light her hair gets at the tips. Mine does the same, but not to such an extreme.
Sharing a summery sister smile
Yesterday was her first day of 3rd grade and her hair is looking great!
I want to let her tell you herself. So without further ado, a little vlog from little Sky on her first day of school!
I’ve also got a little update about our sister Keagan who I wrote about a couple months ago in a piece on natural hair for kids with special needs. Keagan wore two-strand twists for the whole summer, but kicked off her sixth grade school year with a loose and free fro!
Keagan and Mommy!
It’s been a great trip home and the sisters’ locs’n'curls are doing great! Here’s to the start of a great school year for both of them!!
