Sudoku has gotten tired of the tangles that come with having really long hair, so we decided to cut off about 5 inches last week. She’s happy with the ease of the result. I had gotten spoiled with the ease of putting that really long hair in a ballet bun, so I’m having to work at it with this shorter hair.

That reminds me…last week the head hancho ballet instructor/owner came into Sudoku’s class to inspect the girls’ hair. (They are all supposed to come to class with their hair up in a ballet bun. All the girls lined up while Mrs. V walked behind them pointing out what was wrong. “Perfect!” she said when she checked Sudoku, and “Give this girl high marks for today,” she told Sudoku’s instructor. Sudoku was the only one whose hair “passed” that day.
