A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments at SouleMama for all to find and see.

  12. Thanks for the tip on my blog! Do you know any other resources like SOTW that teaches chronologically? I love all the work you do with history. What resources do you use and what age would you recommend them? I'm trying to improvise SOTR so it's just a bunch of fun activities that give some background knowledge since K is only 4. But when she's school age, I would like to have better references for accurate info.
