As an aside, I can't believe we're half-way through the box. Granted, it'll be just about spring when we finish, but the first 32 went quickly.
I have a funny story about cadet blue. My daughter, who is 7.5, is very into art and colors. She actually has a pretty good eye, and will point out the week's color when we're out doing things.
When I showed her the swatch of this week's color, which seems to be one of those difficult ones which defy description (is it blue? is it gray? is it purple?) and one color I'd never heard of before, she said, "Oh, I think that's cadet blue." I was dumbfounded, and impressed. She says she wants to be an illustrator and an author, and it wouldn't surprise me if she wound up doing that.
Anyway, the other funny (or ironic) thing is that I found cadet blue while attending an air show at an air force base. The first thing that usually pops into my mind when I hear the word "cadet" is the military.
The sky is a perfect shade of this color, I do believe.
The show was very good as well.
