{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. Oh Tracey, Reece would be in heaven :) Anything frog, toad or turtle related and he is there. Happy weekend to you too!

  3. Oh, how wonderful! You guys actually found turtles! Just fantastic!
    Mine had to be my favorite quiet sit spot challenge moment of this week. As I mentioned to you before, the blue jays are back and making such a racket in the Douglas Fir on our plot. But it always makes me smile : Baby Blue Jays soon being born!

  6. Wow! my 2 would love to see turtles out in the wild...puts our 3 tadpoles to shame! x

    1. It was pretty exciting for all of us. Heck no, tadpoles are cool too. We found a whole lot of them the other day. Are you raising them? We did that last year, so much fun. Reece hasn't asked to do it this year, he was content to just play with them in the water the other day. Have fun!

    2. The smallest has front legs overnight...I admit I'm a little more interested than the kids. Enjoy your weekend too. Nikki x

    3. Cool! It is amazing how fast it happens. It was the same here, it is why I have let Reece take the lead this year. And so far he hasn't asked so we will leave them in the pond and just visit them :)

  7. I love baby turtles :) I haven't seen one in a couple of years, but once there were three wee ones crossing the road.

  8. Yikes! Perfect perfect! Love the gentleness and concentration (at least in this captured moment it seems!) Would love to know if the moment actually included squeals and squirming!

    Happy weekend to you Kim!

    1. Squeals yes, when his little friend fished it out of the water, but then it was very calm as everyone looked at it, held it and then said good bye before we put it back.

      Happy weekend to you too!

  9. Aw! Such gentle, tiny hands. We are partial to turtles at our house.

    My moment is from another rainy day in Maine. Peaceful, but always raining. http://robinfollette.com/this-moment-tomah-stream/

  10. How sweet! How did it find it? It looks like a muddy rock! :)

    1. I am not sure. Reece's little friend was playing near the water edge and the next thing we knew he had a turtle in his hands. It was covered in mud when he brought it to us. When we put him back he swam in the water for a bit and then burrowed in near the edge of the water under the mud. It was pretty cool to watch.

    Have a lovely weekend, dear friend! xo

  13. It is amazing what you will find by the water's edge! Happy Weekend to you and yours!

  14. Oh my goodness! How funny! We just caught one of these yesterday. We have a pond behind our house and we generally only see the larger snappers, but yesterday while on our walk we say several different places where either scavengers had gotten into nests - or the eggs had hatched. Not five minutes later we found a little baby snapper. We studied snappers when we got home. So much fun!

  16. Wow - an actual turtle (we don't have those round here)!! I'm impressed his friend recognised it, I'd have thought it was a rock!

    1. It was pretty cool. And I think because little hands we playing in the water it was a little easier to find :)
