Getting their ears pierced

Katie and Naomi came home from church camp all excited about getting their ears pierced. We decided to let them do it, and then they chickened out.

A couple days ago Naomi came and told me she was ready to take the plunge and have her ears pierced. Katie wasn't ready yet.

Last night we decided to go into Waterloo, and Naomi piped up and asked if she could do her ears. She wanted her hair in piggy tails so everyone could see her earrings after she was done.

We loaded everyone up and headed for town.

Katie surprised us when we got to the store and said she was going to have hers done also and volunteered to go first. Katie chose pink "diamond" earrings.

First they cleaned her earlobes with an alcohol swab.

Then they marked where they were going to put the earring.

One down, one to go!

All smiles the next day.

Naomi was a little unsure of the whole process to begin with.

She got her marks on her ears.

In the process of getting the first earring.

The first one is done.

The second is done. She's sure glad there are no more!

It was worth it!

The girls did a good job. No tears, no crying. They were a bit disappointed to learn that they couldn't change their earrings for six weeks. They were busy picking out pretty new earrings already. They'll be ready for new ones right around Christmas time.

"...and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge." Proverbs 18:15b
