Perfect Moment Monday: Thursdays

I Capture
Perfect Moments.

I have this two part perfect moment every Thursday when I pick up my four year old nephew from kindergarten.

Outside the place there is this playground with some nice shadow giving trees and some benches to sit on. Not far there is an elementary school, and there are always kids playing in the playground. It is also very near a 6 year high school, so there are these teenagers walking past the playground on their way home. And I just love sitting and watching. I love watching people, more so I love looking at children, how they play, how they interact..

Then the clock ticks 13:30 and it's time to pick up the kid. He is such a chatter box and I so enjoy listening to him. He would start by asking me if I want to know XYZ (or - why XYZ) and before I have a chance of saying "yes", he starts telling me. And I love our conversations we have while walking home. I get to learn why his big brother is so tall (and he is.. a meter eighty something [over 6 feet] at the age of 14), and how when he'll be as big as his brother etc etc etc (yes, he probably admires him..). Just a perfect moment that gets repeated every week for the 15 minutes it takes us to walk home :-).

Now go and see all the other perfect moments!

Thanks for sharing your repetitive Perfect Moment. Aren't those the best kind? :)

Kids are so wonderfully innocent. I love the way they say whatever they are thinking and share with you their kid (4-year old in this case) logic.

Beautiful. Perfect. Thank you!

Kindergarteners do have a way of creating perfect moments for us older folks. Such wonder at the world, such confidence in it.

Lovely moment.
