This Beautiful Moment {Brothers Playing Jenga} & Snapshot Summary, Week 24; March 7-11

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.

  3. Some of my very favorite photos are of all of mine gathered around either concentrating or laughing. The Jenga photo is indeed a special moment. I also really like the concentration in the writing photo from Thursday! You teach me so much about incorporating learning into the every day moments. Meals, writing, games for math and so much more.
