Coming soon…


Avery had some down time when she got home from school today. I found her making bracelets and loved all the color so I grabbed my camera. These bracelets are a huge fad right now in elementary school here. However, the kids are only allowed to wear one to school at a time though, not a whole arm full! Avery was given the loom and some bands from her Grandma for Christmas. She loves to make these with her friends. Reminds me of the “silly band” trend that was big a couple of years ago. I remember some of the trends when I was elementary school. Charm necklaces, “units” belts (basically a piece of knit material you were around your waist), jelly shoes, sticker books…I could go on. Oh man, the memories! I had to document this because it is likely a fad that will go out soon, but one that Avery will want to remember when she’s older.
