In spite of my neck, the girls desperately needed their hair done. We took Tori's out several days ago and the friend from church who usually does her hair is out of town for a while. Yesterday I called another friend's daughter, who is also adopted from Liberia, and she came last night and corn-rowed it. Thank goodness, one down....and I think it looks really cute.
After taking this picture, Tori suggested I get a picture of her big eyes. Tori is known for her big eyes.
We took part of Julia's braids out yesterday. This morning, she was fighting getting the rest taken out. I assured her that she wouldn't be going to church tomorrow with her current look.
Since I'm the hair-washer and re-fixer, I assigned Alei the unpleasant task of getting the remaining braids out. I was surprised how quiet it was while Alei was working. This is why....
Julia is still on the couch asleep and I'm going to look online for less time-consuming hair styles for the next few days while my neck continues to heal. Then I'll re-braid.
