This Beautiful Moment (Summer Night) & Snapshot Summary August 15-20, {week 47}

This is the photo I have picked out to be my special beautiful moment of the week.
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
Soule Mama for all to find and see.


This whole week has been involved in prepartions for our Family Camp. We have taken moments out of cleaning, shopping and preparing to play, learn, explore and enjoy nature. James got his allergy shots. We have recieved postcards from Hungry and Poland.
