Living Arrows 11/52

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran.

Every Monday for the rest of this year I will share with you two photo’s of my children that celebrate their childhood.

One goal that I make every year but inevitably fail at is to try to get outside more. I don’t mean just in the garden but to actually go somewhere on the weekend. Sometimes I find myself having to squash in the remainder of undone chores from the week in to the weekend. This leaves little time to visit anywhere other than the local park.

I was determined to get out together as a family this weekend. I planned in advance so no matter what the weather there were no excuses. We went to a local farm, it’s community run and the entry fee is more than reasonable. It’s the perfect place to take photo’s and make memories. That’s what life is all about after all.


Daisy drinks in everything around her. She always wants to know why, or how or when. I feel privileged to watch her learn and grow. I might not have all the answers for her but I will certainly try my best.

Jake is a hands on little boy. He loves to touch and explore so the sensory garden at the farm was his paradise. So much will change for him in the next few months. He will turn 3 and start going to nursery and those last little pieces of babyhood will be left behind.

Nappies are slowly being replaced with big boy undies. The booster seat at the dinner table is about to be retired and the stair gates are redundant. Jake is my last baby so these little but important changes are almost bittersweet.

  1. It sounds like you had a lovely day, I end up giving up on the housework sometimes just to actually spend time with my son outside.
    Good luck with the potty training, we tackled that hurdle this year thankfully, I did get to the point where I was thinking he would be in nappies forever! #LivingArrows

    1. Great news about the potty training, I think it’s one of the toughest parts of parenting. I don’t blame you leaving the housework it will still be there when you get back !

  2. Everything about motherhood is bittersweet isn’t it? I do love a good local farm visit though – sounds like you made the most of the weekend #livingarrows
