Living Arrows 13/52 {2019}

“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.


I’m totally cheating this week and using some photo’s from last weekends park trip. I haven’t so much as looked at my camera this week let alone snapped any pics on my phone. It’s been a busy week and weekend but rather than miss a week of living arrows I thought I would use some older photo’s.

I’m so proud of Daisy this weekend, her dad and I went away overnight and she was such a grown-up girl showing her granddad where everything was while he was looking after them. She even read the bedtime story to Jake and helped him with his reading book on Sunday too.


Since Jake started reception class in September I’ve been able to go inside the classroom with him in the morning. This is changing now as they are beginning to prepare the children for year one where we won’t be able to do that anymore. Jake was a little apprehensive about me leaving him at the classroom door and saying goodbye this week. After going in a few days on his own he’s soon got into the swing of things and is happily waving me off and even remembering to put his reading book in the tray.

    I don’t care that your cheating with the photos – they are both lovely! I especially love the picture of Daisy in the tunnel 🙂

    It’s great to be able to give our children some independence but understand it can be painful too as we lessen the hold we have on them. #LivingArrows

      It’s certainly hard to let go, but we must let them spread their wings really x

    I’ve had a similar week this week with photos! Looks like you’ve picked some great ones. Sounds like Jake settled into the new routine quickly. x

      He really has, he’s been going in no problem and has even forgotten to wave at me x

    It’s so hard when they make changes like that at school isn’t it, big adjustment for the children. With my daughter’s class they never let us parents in the classroom at all, not even on the first day. I remember thinking it seemed a bit harsh at the time but in a way I’m quite glad they established that rule from the start so we don’t have to try and change things now! x #LivingArrows

    I sometimes have weeks when I just don’t take any pictures too – I’m sure no-one minds if you’re using ones from last week 🙂 It sounds like they’ve both been great this week – definitely growing up! #LivingArrows
