{This Moment} Last Sunday After Church

{This Moment} A weekend 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 are inspired to do the same leave a link to you moment in the comments section for all to find and see. Wishing you a lovely first weekend of Autumn! xo

{This Moment} On September 11th

{This Moment} A weekend 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 are inspired to do the same leave a link to your moment in the comments section for all to find and see. My apologies for being rather late with this weeks moment. Somehow Friday and Saturday slipped by before I realized I hadn't shared our moment! We wish you all a lovely Sunday! xo

Save The Bees!

 Yesterday, the girls went outside in search of minibeasts as part of their nature study. While they were out there Grace noticed a bee (a minibeast!) walking down the back deck stairs. She them came in to tell me that there was something super important that I had to come see. I immediately went outside and the girls showed me a honeybee that was waking in the garden across from the stairs. A quick Google search told us that a walking bee is a starving bee and we followed the recommendation of mixing water with a bit of honey to feed to it. We placed the mixture in a teaspoon and put it near the bee. It quickly found it and immediately began to drink! We watched as she regained her strength and stayed until she flew away. It was truly one of the most incredible experiences of our lives! xo

The photos below were taken by Emma. She also recorded a video too that we shared on Facebook yesterday.

Sunday Smiles

Gelato at Eataly (even though they'd already had ice cream at church)! Some days just call for ice cream twice in one day! xo

Fields Of Gold

Yesterday's adventure was easily one of the most beautiful that we have been on. We journeyed north to Colby Farm where we were greeted by a sea of sunflowers (150,000 seeds had been planted), gorgeous blue skies and, because it was a weekday afternoon, had the place pretty much to ourselves. There were little spots in the field where you could stand and feel like you were one of the thousands upon thousands of sunflowers out there. It was truly magical and a lovely way to spend a September afternoon! xo

Emma's Compass Rose


Today she began a maps/mapping block for main lesson. First up: the compass rose!
Em asked me to take this picture of her. Originally I wasn't planning to share it, but once I noticed Gretchen in the background I couldn't resist! xo
