Dear Diary

Went to school. Played volleyball. Mrs. Newburg played too. There was a speaker at are school a lady, was she ever good. Went to Mommy and got a multed with mom + dad + Bob. Came home and put up my hair. 

 

A note from me: My grandmother seemed to be quite particular about her hair. That didn’t change when I knew her as well. There were always hair appointments in her plan book so the idea of her always putting her hair up at night makes me smile. 🙂
