This Beautiful Moment, Robin Hood's Hunting Horn Edition and Snapshot Summary, May 16-21 {week 32}

{this moment}

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.

Snapshot Summary, May 16-21

I have decided to do this week's Snapshot Summary a little different this week. This week I am listing things by topic rather than by the day of the week.
Parts of the Brain Model
Nature Study

Geometry and Tesselations
Signed Numbers

Besides reading books...
Serpintine Path Game

What we are Reading
a little break from our history-related reading

Islamic Empires in the Renaissance

Postcard-Geography Album: North Carolina
Our picture study this week was The Tomb of Pope Julius II- 1542-1545.
We will look more closely at the statue of Moses next week.
