following the moon

An ordinary Saturday morning...
waking up in the dark...
getting ready to head out with Laura for volunteering...
waking a sleeping boy, who wanted to join us.

We spotted the moon...
hovering low behind the treeline...
full and bright...
and beautiful.

Around the bend...
there it was again...
unhidden...
spectacular.

Parked in the chilly car...
windows open, chatting quietly...
sipping warm chocolate, and nibbling muffins...
a momma and her kids... following the moon.

How sweet...what a great way to start your day.
I also saw that moon this morning...then I rolled back over and went to sleeep. :)

I love this! What kind of volunteering were you doing? You are a great mom : ). Muffins, cocoa and helping the world! I love it!

how a heart can swell when someone says "you are a great mom!" anyway, Laura is the volunteer (although does my drive time count?) she spends her saturdays in at the barn... it is an equestrian challenge program for kids with special needs. she assists in the lessons, tacking, and other barn stuff! she sure loves it!

Did you know that this past Saturday's moon was the largest full moon we're going to see in 2009? I heard that on the news... our local meteorologist told us... there were also some other stats (which escape me now). I love watching the cycles of the moon. I think it's really neat. And it was spectacular to behold. :)
