OBSERVATIONS: Last week was the week where Children Were Not Around. It was weird and peaceful as the same time. It made me realize that we may have a whole other life to live one day. One where we eat when it suits us. And stuff like that.
Anyhoo, I also used some of the kids' photos from their trips. My kids attend a Montessori High School, and taking trips is an essential part of their community-building approach to education. Apparently, both trips were a success. Always good to hear this from your wayward offspring. Onto the week:
Upon Aidan's return, we hit the yarn store. She has become the family knitter, and is presently obsessed with making a Dr. Who-themed scarf. She is also obsessed with themed-nail art, as you see below.
I love having shots taken by them. Especially the one in the lower right? Only a 13-year-old boy could have taken that. Love the composition.
Here's the recap:
And that is all I wrote for Week 37.

Tell Aidan to check out Darn Knit Anyway in Stillwater. Very cool yarn store.
There are some very cool Dr Who patterns on Ravelry (www.ravelry.com). I know I would like a Tardis blanket!

OK, this is probably not a question you get often. 🙂 My 13 year old would looove her nails to look like that. We go through a lot of nail polish with her trying different things, but little success. What does Aidan use? Is she painting it on, buying something specific? I’d love deets (and to be a hero for a day)!
OH wow. She will flip!
She just uses regular polish, and then uses toothpics and q-tips for the detail work. Seriously. She has lots of OPI and Esse polishes.
Cathy, you MUST share Aidan’s scarf when she’s done. I’d love to see it!

When I looked at your pictures all I thought was how fast Cole is growing. Can anyone look more like his Dad?!!?
Great pictures. Thanks for helping me keep motivated to keep current with my project life. (I must admit I am behind on my Move More Eat Well book though)
So envious of the Montessori high school experience your kids are having. We’re not in America, and the only 6-9 Montessori class within 4 hours drive closed last year. And that was as ‘high’ as it went here… Sigh. This is what I would do if I were to win Lotto – shift so that my kids could experience Montessori schooling from where they’re at to the end. Well, until University/College anyway. As always, thank you for sharing 🙂
Love the hair cut Cathy ! I really Love that you include photos from the kids cameras too, very cool.

Starry night nails? Your daughter is cooler than most of the adults I know.
What a great week, love that you could include the pictures from the kids. How nice to have had the house to yourselves, peaceful and clean!! So glad you have the computer back, ENJOY!!!
Ace nails, Aidan!
Actually, I’ve got to show this to my 12 yr old – she is totally not into picking the camera up and working with it, so everything is always from my angle and no-one else’s…. this might spur her on a bit!
Is Aidan on Pinterest? There’s a TON of nail ideas on there.
And if she is, I’d love to follow her! Mine is http://www.pinterest.com/laney

This will probably crack you up but I simply must know the company that made your daughter’s cute bag with the stars. My daughter flipped over it!
oh, sure. Timbuktu. You pick your fabrics and customize the bag. SO fun. Not cheap, but quality for sure!

Actually I love that. We have a large brick one that fills up one wall and I love that one as wall. Very homey.
