"Children are born naturalists, with a bent inherited, perhaps, from an unknown ancestor; but every child has a natural interest in the living things about him which it is the business of his parents to encourage; for, but few children are equal to holding their own in the face of public opinion; and if they see that the things which interest them are indifferent or disgusting to you, their pleasure in them vanishes, and that chapter in the book of Nature is closed to them."
(Out-Of-Door Life For The Children, Charlotte Mason)

Linking up with Gina at Someday (Hopefully) They'll Be Saints for another week of seeking out and holding tight the simple moments that make this life (and my family!) extraordinary.
"...there is something holy, something divine hidden in the most ordinary
situations, and it is up to each on of you to discover it."
