Jaylene loves the look of long hair, but at the end of every spring she decides to get it all chopped off. It just gets too hot in the summer to deal with long hair. Short hair has its problems as well though, mainly bangs get in the way of seeing everything that goes on in the world. Hairbands are a solution, however Jaylene is very specific about the style of hairband she can use. There can be no teeth and the ends can not hurt your ears.
The other day we discovered a little craft store that was selling white hairbands that had no teeth. We bought about twenty for less than two dollars! We brought them home and Jaylene started pulling out ribbons and other decorative elements and instructed me on how to glue them on.
Introducing a line of hair accessories by Jaylene K… “Little Rose”, “Sea Blue” and “Shamrock”. She even told me how to make “pockets” for the ends to protect her ears.
I usually don’t use hair accessories because they give me headaches. How do you adorn your hair?
Baseball has replaced soccer as the sport of their hearts (but soccer is a close second). I love this video… Jaylene’s cackle of accomplishment, Jayden’s excited cheer “Baseball!” (in Chinese) and the way they rush past the camera in their own versions of the sport.
Some pictures taken by a friend on our camping trip. I cropped and edited them a wee bit. I really need to start taking the nice camera out with us.

If you had dropped by to visit the last couple of afternoons, you would have found Jaylene and I hunched over our bead boards, furiously beading up a storm. And by beading I mean merely stringing beads on wire and adding clasps. But that’s enough to bring joy to our hearts. We love beaded necklaces!
Jaylene calls hers, “Twinkle Star”.
I don’t have names for mine yet, can you help me think of some?
What’s your favorite jewelry?
Saturday we headed to Jayden’s kindergarten’s end of the year party where the kids were gifted with some sticker packs. Jayden immediately put them to good use.
This caused quite a ruckus among his classmates.
Later that night hula hooping happened.
