“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gilbran Anyone who pops over here regularly will realise that I haven’t been around much lately. Mainly due to the work happening on our house – which has tapered off for the moment as we are nearly done – and secondly because living in the mess in a small house with three young children managed to overwhelm me. At times it felt like I would never be organised again.  Due to this, photo taking has been few and far between as the weekends have passed…

This weeks photo is Ollie dressed up for May Dancing at his preschool. Honestly I got a little lump in my throat at the cuteness of it all – the outfit, the bows and the dancing, and the beautiful May Arch made of flowers. I remember doing May dancing at school, I can’t say it was my favourite thing as even at a young age the costumes made me cringe but I have happy memories of it. It’s a shame not a lot of schools do it anymore – Izzie’s doesn’t, but it was lovely to watch Ollie and his…

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gilbran   This week Izzie went to her first Brownie session. She has been counting down the days and been so excited to go. I have very fond memories of Brownies and it taught me valuable life skills so I’m so excited for her to go. She came back absolutely loving it and really excited to get her uniform when she takes her ‘promises’ in a few weeks!

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gilbran This week I’m sharing a very rare sight in this photo of my eldest two. It’s rare because at the moment, not often are they found playing nicely together, and not fighting. Turns out, the trick is outdoor space, some paint and an old cardboard box. I won’t lie, the Easter holidays have been brutal, all they’ve done is scrap and tell tales on each other – but these moments where they are happy and content in each other’s company make it all worth…

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gilbran This week Izzie turned 7. I’m still wondering how that happened? A minute a go she was this tiny baby and now she is 7?! Remember when you give birth and people say ‘enjoy every moment, it goes so fast’ and you politely nod and smile in your sleep deprived haze. Then you wake up one day and have a 7 year old?! Izzie was so happy to spend her birthday with her best friend. If you read my blog regularly, you may remember that…

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran At the moments the weeks are seeming to fly by, and I am measuring them by when Izzie’s homework is due in. She has a choice of five pieces of homework each term, of which she has to pick three, and they are due in every two weeks. This weekend saw the final piece being done for this term – and Izzie chose a baking one. We made gingerbread – and they actually taste good. Here she is looking very pleased with her work. She is…
