{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.

    1. He has found some branches that had been chewed by a little creature over the winter. He was taking a look at the teeth marks, then we search for animal poop...the verdict, a rabbit :)

    1. Yes, we are slowly getting there, although the "snow" word was mentioned in the long range forecast for next week...sigh.

  3. Is that snow still on the ground? Now what did Reece spy?

    1. You bet Tracey. It seems to really like us this year and doesn't want to go away :) He has found some branches that had been chewed by a little creature over the winter. He was taking a look at the teeth marks, then we search for animal poop...the verdict, a rabbit :)

  7. I was reading your comments to figure out what he was looking at. What a neat way to teach him about nature. I'm sure my boy will be most excited for the identifying scat bit of it. Why are boys so fascinated with poop?... ;) be well.

    1. It is so much fun, letting nature guide and teach us. All I do is ask a few questions here and there to get him thinking. So much fun. And yes, boys and poop go hand in hand :)

  8. I still see snow and mitts! We has someone putting "presents" in the pool, a google search on scat revealed a raccoon!!

    1. You most certainly do, but we are at the end of it. It is warming up, snow is melting and the rain is coming to wash the earth clean. Spring is here!!!! Oh no, not fun.

    Happy weekend :)

    1. Haha, yes, much focus when he is trying to figure this stuff out :)

  11. Oh that's fun! Did you teach him those skills or did he learn that from the nature class he takes?

    1. So much fun! That would be a combination. The nature class is based on the Art of Mentoring, which we have been a part of for a few years. A big part of the mentoring is the art of questioning. There are different levels of questioning and you work within the childs/adults knowledge base to start and then move deeper. It is all very interesting and provides a wonderful framework for me to guide/teach these skills.

  12. It must have been good spotting to find the marks on the branch. Lovely to have a bit more variety to your landscape now for nature investigations. Have a great weekend.

    1. It was a great one. The branches were actually chewed up quite high, it took him awhile to figure out how the rabbit got up so high. In the end he figured out that was how high the snow was :) And yes, I agree, I love this time of year, it is like uncovering the earth and seeing the wonderful surprises below.

  15. This image is perfect in so many ways - how wonderful that your son is aware of the environment around him. Being able to spot these small signs whist out in nature makes the experience so much more rewarding. xx
