This Beautiful Moment {Zoom "Ball" Edition} and Snapshot Summary June 13-19 {week 35}

{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.

We looked at Bruegel's The Peasant Wedding and made pictures of Queen Anne's Lace with chalk pastels.
To demonstrate Newton's Laws, and to have some summer fun, we played with Balloon Rockets...
