{this moment}: education al fresco

{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.  Hosted by SouleMama.


  1. That is indeed perfect! My (poor cell phone) picture this week is also from our learning together. Thank you for sharing.

  2. How peaceful....we mamas know the peace doesn't last forever...gotta savor it while we can, right?

    Our moment:

  3. Great moment.
    Are they all yours?

    Regards from a peruvian.
    I came from Soule Mama

  4. Ha! Ha! I love this photo! Yesterday, we went to the state fair. It was Home School day, amongst other things. So lovely to see so many (large) homeschool families in attendance. Where all are you located? We are down in TX.

    I have four littles. Although, I was the middle of nine. Enjoyed my childhood!

  5. Just found your through Soul Mama..and I have to say..That is some patch of dirt you have. Ilove the title of your blog and I love the fresh outdoor schooling that is going on here!

  6. Giozi: Yes, they are all mine, and I didn't get my baby girl (age one)into the shot!

    Patty: We are in North-Central Tennessee.

    Lisa: Thank you! I hope you'll come back often!

  7. i think my kids would love it if we could do our homeschool al fresco too ;-) what a great idea!

  8. This is such a perfect shot, one that draws you in!

  9. OH, that is a WONDERFUL photo. I love it. I love the title, too! Thanks for sharing it!

  10. that is a perfect homeschool moment!
    don't you wish sometimes you could pause and rewind those days?
    i know i do!

    ps.i am smiling at the "are they all yours" comment. we're catholic! of course they are all yours! :)
    but that's just me being cheeky.

    pss. i totally agree with you about chucking the tv out the window. my bigger kids are now in the habit of trying to constantly corrupt themselves via the media. and it breaks. my. heart. i HATE cable. and we only have it because it is my husband's way of unwinding from a long. hard. day.

    ppss. my heart is aching for baby gemma. weaning is heartbreaking enough when they do it themselves.(at least it was so for me). just be sure you snuggle with her during that time any way. sort of like a "spiritual communion". i can't give you my milk(body), baby. but i can give you my lovin'. perhaps that'll ease the pain a bit for both of you.
    hope you get rid of that nasty thrush soon. poor mama.
