Share and Share Alike & Posts of the Week

Sharing is what the POTW are all about.

You visit me.

I visit you.

I do my best to keep track of the posts that make me think "more people should read/see this" and so I share it.

It's simple really.

Lindsay drinks
I love it when kidlets understand fairness and show empathy to others. Lynzie is enjoying a cool drink of water. You can see that Lily is anxious to quench her own thirst and Ms. Lynzie is quite aware of her.

Lily drinks
Lily's turn. Who says kids don't know how to share?

It looks like it's about time to do a bit of sharing of my own.

And now, without further delay, here are the Posts of the Week. The icon below is yours for the taking if if your blog post is named as a POTW.

Like the "mystery' boot in the photos.

Lisa Gordon said...

What sweet shots these are, Hilary!
Imagine if everyone could share so nicely.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

ADRIAN said...

PS. I was busy moving this morning. I think your neighbours children should be in drama school.

They are brilliant....I don't have any real affinity with children...dangerous they are and unpredictable.

How many shots did you bin?

I bet their parents are happy with these. They are good.

DJan said...

I don't know how I missed that first one, since I always read Friko. Thank you for the POTWs and the wonderful pictures. :-)

Ruth Hiebert said...

These are some precious pictures of the innocence of little children.

Red said...

Excellent ideals...kindness sharing. Excellent photos to illustrate these qualities. Yes little kids seem to have these characteristics and somehow along the way we lose them.

TexWisGirl said...

just love those little girls and their little rubber boots. :)

off to go visit...

Sharon Wagner said...

Thanks for sharing! I'm having a lot of fun with random 5, so I'm glad someone thinks it is funny. The squirrel not so much!

ellen abbott said...

those are the sweetest kids and you always manage to catch the best expressions.

Anonymous said...

How adorable! Kids are pretty good at sharing at that age!

photowannabe said...

Oh my, Hilary.
Thank you for the Potw honor.
It was certainly a surprise.
I appreciate your doing this every week. I have read and looked at so many fascinating posts and met such wonderful people.
Love ya

stephen Hayes said...

Love those pics of kids sharing. Too bad the entire world isn't doing the same.

Anvilcloud said...

My wife was just in here wondering what the heck the POTW comments were all about. It took me a minute to clue-in, but I did. See? I am not totally senile yet. Partly, yes. Totally, no.

Rita said...

Just melts me when kids show their sweet, sharing side. :)

Kerry said...

Lovely sharing, Hilary! Both your photos and the POTWs which I love. You've introduced me to many blogs. :)

Barbara said...

What sweet little girls!! Kudos to their parents! And congrats to the POTW. Thanks for making us aware of them, Hilary!

Laura said...

so sweet... love the little boots too:-)

Meri said...

Oh my gosh -- the little girls are adorable. My youngest son has had a red head girlfriend for over four years now. . . at some point, I think they'll get married. Maybe a little copper-haired girl is in my future?

Unknown said...

Hilary: This is a precious message for any season of the year. Thanks, as usual for sharing new blogs! Will check them out!! ;)

Liz Mays said...

There's that precious little photogenic doll!

Thank you for the honor. It is always humbling to be one of your POTW. You capture so much emotion in your photos--great shots!

Anita said...

Lynzie and Lily are a beautiful metaphor for your POTW series.

I stopped by Mage's where I found a deep and touching post. Thank you.

Mage said...

Well, thank you so much. I stopped by to say thank you for the lovely note about my daughter's new life, and here I am a POTW. Thanks for sharing that piece. It seems to have opened up a lot of folks. Thanks for the note too. After her graduation today, I will send her here.

Maggie May said...

Love the little girl photos.

Just had to come back and comment on your comment to me.
You really made me smile with your Poppies and Coppies....and Poppies and Mommies.
Isn't blogging a hoot sometimes?

yaya said...

Those kiddos are adorable and you've captured that special moment perfectly...and the cutest thing in the pics (beside all the kids) are their boots! Love em!

Leave It To Davis said...

Oh, thank you for stopping by my blog!!! I knew your name immediately...what blog is yours...and thought, "she hasn't posted lately". I have seen your comments other times and it didn't dawn on me that when I deleted my blog in my craziness that I didn't put myself back as a follower on your blog!!!! How could I do that to myself???? I adore your pictures and love the fact that you love nature and are such a wonderful person! I love your dog, too! So thanks for coming by and for sending a prayer up for my are the BEST!

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

As always, thank you for the wonderful links!

Very nice photos showing the generosity of children. I like the picture of the little girl with head tilted watching her friend drinking, great face. Thanks for the recommendations. Will get around to the posts now.
