{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual, inspired by SouleMama, 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. 

she chose this work herself
she acted rather surprised when, at last, we pointed out that her drawing looked a lot like the poster on the if she had no clue it was even there
this is why we choose to surround children with beauty, nature, art, good food, excellent books, respect, kindness, and all sorts of goodness
you never know when they just might absorb it and make it their own

Guess that has already been said though:

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.


  1. Beautiful, in so many ways :)

    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. How beautiful! Kandinsky is one of my absolutely favorite visual artists. We believe in surrounding children with beauty and excellence too! And we believe in Philippians 4:8 : ) Have a happy weekend with your budding artists!

    Our moment:

  3. Wonderful!

    We had freezing temps her this week and this is how we kept busy.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. What a fabulous moment! And I love your words paired with the picture!

    Our moment this week comes from my youngest daughter writing her first words. She has been writing her name for awhile, though the Ms are usually upside down, but this was the first time that she has written the word "Love". I love that love was her first written word (beyond her name)!

    Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

  5. Love it! It's so amazing what they just absorb, isn't it? (Makes me want to go out and get some great art prints to hang up this weekend...)
    Happy weekend :)

  6. So sweet. I love how focused she is. That is a lovely poster (and I love LOVE her hair!!) be well.

  7. Love the bright colors in the photos - and those curls! My Moment this week is also of my little babe coloring - well, her first attempt at coloring!

  8. Ah...I'd say she's following in Wasily's steps, whether she knows it or not!

  9. aw sounds like she's a clever girl

  10. So talented!
    Beautiful art.
