“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 in a blur of decorating and dust – nothing photo worthy.
Today marks the start of half term and hopefully a more relaxed time.
I thought I’d share a few of the random photos I have taken over the last few weeks that were Living Arrows moments. Izzie managed to FINALLY ride her bike without stabilisers – Izzie will always do things in her own time, when she wants to – and when she decided to go for it there was no turning back. She’s so proud of her new birthday bike too! I’m realising more and more that scenes like this will be few and far between in September when Ollie starts full time school. They all squabble a lot, but both Izzie and Ollie are incredibly sweet to Mason and I snapped this on the school run the other day.
Izzie went on her first Brownie trip to a local dairy farm – and I got to go along too. They got to feed the younger calfs and even got to see one that was born that morning. Izzie loves animals and always has since she was tiny. We also got to see how the cows were milked, and try some ice cream and yoghurt that was made on the farm.
Due to the mess at home, we’ve been spending time at the park after school and it’s been lovely. Izzie is so good with Mason who refuses to use the equipment for younger children and always wants to go down the big slide. She is always right by his side making sure he’s ok. It makes me very proud that she is so kind to him – especially when she could just run off and play with the kids her age.
I will be linking up with Donna at What The Redhead Said this week for Living Arrows – you can see who else has linked up here…
