{This Moment}

{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 for all to find and see. Inspired by Soulemama.

  2. Love this! We have yet to get the girls on skates! There really is no excusse since in our town there are two skating rinks (one that is a major hockey hub)! I should add skating to our list of things to do in the next few weeks!

    Our moment this week comes from the girls and their best friends playing with the puppet theater! They had a lovely sequence going where whoever sat in the little rocking chair was the next to put on a show! These four littles are so amazing together and I am so glad that our two families have each other on this journey!

    1. Thanks Shel. It was Reece's first time. I thought we would be on the ice for 10 minutes and we ended up skating for 35 minutes...he loved it.

  3. Do they make those in adult sizes? It would probably save my pride and rear end! Here's our moment:

    1. You bet KC. Skating is a must for Canadian kids. I agree, those skating frames are awesome for beginners.

  6. Oh, I am jealous! It has been so long since I have been skating. I have so many good memories of doing it as a kid. I'm sure your little guy loved it. Here is my moment this week, playing on a very windy day: http://mommyrepeat.blogspot.com/

    1. He really enjoyed Katie and can't wait to go again this weekend, hopefully on my brother's pond..fingers crossed. It had been quite a few years since I had been on skates too, just like riding a bike though, once I got on the ice it all came back :)

  7. Sweet moment! Love the bar to help him along! I went ice skating a few weeks ago and my daughter really wanted to join in...but no skates in her size. Maybe next year!

    1. The skating frame is really great for the newbies. I had a bit of hard time finding both skates and a helmet for Reece, took a bit of searching, but finally found them. Worth it!!! Thanks for stopping by Megan.

    1. It is pretty cool. Just have to be careful they aren't leaning on it too much :) Ah, yes double-runners, there was actually a little one there last week with a pair, didn't know they still made them.

      Thanks for stopping by Wendy.
