|Nate as Noah during Spirit Week 2008|
There was no Spirit Week when I was in middle school or high school so I live through the SW of my OS. Yes, according them, I'm kind of like a stage mom when it comes to Spirit Week.

Check out this video to see the pajamas in action.
But now that my middle OS is feeling so much better, nearly all of my parental energy pours into Spirit Week 2011.

Monday morning, Aaron pranced into school wearing his designer-made sea turtle pajama pants. I wanted to create a sea turtle applique for the t-shirt but he sternly spurned my suggestion.

|Interesting fact about butterflies...they are easily irritated when you take too many pictures of them. It's true!|
When Aaron returned he had metamorphosed into a beautiful, extremely large butterfly~ He wore his grandpa's really yellow golf pants and custom-made wings. Truly breathtaking! We thought this was an apt description of adolescence and doesn't every teenager want to be reminded of puberty on Animal Kingdom Day? I thought so!
So how do you top being a pupa?

There were many creative animal costumes. For example, Zack, Aaron's best friend was a swan complete with a feathery behind that wiggled back and forth as he walked.
