Our Hero Kyle!
















Friends, I'd like to introduce to you my other son, Kyle. This young man is one of Jacob's best friends. I love him and his momma Linda is such a close friend of mine. Kyle decided to donate his hair to Locks for Love, and Jacob and his motley crew of friends came to watch the main event. Jacob is on the newspaper staff and he took pictures and wrote an article in the paper for the high school. Momma Bennett had to hold his hand while he got his hair cut. They were able to get 4 ponytails that were 10" long. Hopefully this will make someone very happy to have a real hairdo while they are receiving chemo. I just love these kids! They are very caring and so considerate of others. Both Jacob and Kyle received the Falcon Award yesterday in a honors ceremony for gifted students. Yea Jacob and Kyle!
Hugs my friends,
DaisyGirl

What a great thing to accomplish! Growing out that much hair for a "boy" is difficult. My son, when he was 10 grew his hair out (he wanted "Hockey Hair"). Unfortunately, by the time that he was ready to get it cut it wasn't quite long enough for the Locks of Love ponytail. He thought about waiting, but just couldn't stand having the long hair (I guess when his 5th grade teacher, who was a little old fashion, took them on a tour of the middle school they were getting ready to move to, she made a comment about him probably needing to use the girl's locker room to change into PE clothing. Well, that was "straw that broke the camel's back".)
