At one point, one of my students who isn't normally all that talkative unless we ask him to speak, sat down next to my speech intern on the bench at the butterfly house and said, "Wonderful," as he looked at all the butterflies flying overhead. It was magical, that moment, and I let myself pause to appreciate it just for a second.
And then, of course, I had to scramble to keep up with a fast-moving third grader.
But there were many more beautiful little moments of shared awe today. Hooray for field trips.

What wonderful thing did you experience today? Did you let yourself "be in the moment" to take it all in?
