Kid's Clothes Week has started today! And I'm so excited. Although you may not guess it, since I'll be showering you with non KCW related photos. We just got back from a weekend spent north. Which was crazy, awesome, spent outdoors and full of activity, just to describe it in a few words.
Clockwise from top left: Sunset Kayaking with A & L; A catching a good sized Blue Gill; Solo kayaking sunset ride; A, C & L admiring a baby turtle the hubs found.
We wound up spending (as usual when we go north) pretty much all our time outside from the moment the bugs aren't too bad in the morning until dark at night. It's been really interesting this year, since the kids have been making a lot more discoveries on their own, without as much prompting from myself (woohoo! Guess who can now sit in a hammock and knit....ok...not really since I'll be asked questions every couple of minutes but you gals know what I mean!).

We also spent lots of time on the water, kayaking, paddle boating and fishing. It's nice now that all the kids enjoy fishing and have the patience for it. L is still a little hit and miss but overall it makes the experience way more enjoyable. Speaking of fishing, this weekend was filled with yummy food! Fresh fish for dinner, loads of fresh veggies and fruits for snacks and meals. I couldn't have asked for more! My cottage cooking is still pretty minimal, but I've finally started to get around to figuring out what is doable and what is easy. Which means if I can prep it in advance, it's awesome in my books. Same with if I can load it all in one dish it's even better!

Now back to KCW, I've been prepping a bunch of stuff over the last week or so to sew up this week. I don't want to jinx myself, but we're definitely going to be playing up the Kid Art theme, since we'll be doing some tie dye Skinny Tees, and trying out some fabric painting. I would like to try out screen printing but not too sure if that will happen this week. The kids (especially the boys) are in need of basic things, like tees and shorts. But back to school is already half way here, which means the back to school sewing may be starting up soon as well. Thinking things that will transition from summer into the fall easily here (again with the tees, but also possibly some pants).
Well I can't wait to get officially started on my KCW! See you all tomorrow with some sewing! :)
