A photo from the week. Not too many words. A simple moment, extraordinary, special. Something I want to remember, cherish, to pause over. If you have a "moment" leave a link in the comments for others to find and share.

I don't have a photo today. We've had a l.o.n.g. week. Day camp for #2 and #3, a sleepover and vbs and friends for #1, and general playing and napping for #5 and #4. I don't think my camera has come out except for one or two photos.
But I do have a moment. Such a sweet moment. I wish I had a picture of it. I almost re-enacted it so I could have a picture of it.
Once we got home Thursday from picking up everyone from friends and camp we headed straight to the backyard to check on the chickens and see if there were any eggs (there was, one). After that excitement most of the kids moved into the strawberry and raspberry patch for a late afternoon snack. Earlier I had set up the sprinkler to water the yard next to the garden and it was hitting much of the garden area as well. It's important to know that #5 HATES the sprinkler, in fact, he screams every time he is gotten wet. #2 knows this and was in the garden/berry patch with him. I saw from the living room windows that every time the sprinkler would come around again to their area of the garden #2 would shield baby with his own body. #2 took the water each time so that #5 wouldn't have to and wouldn't get upset.
Such a tender moment. Such a beautiful look into my sweet #2. A moment, although not photographed, I want to keep in my mind for a long time. Something I have retold and pondered and cherished all week.
