Living Arrows 3/52

“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.

I was a bad blogger last week and barely took any photo’s of anything let alone the children. The weather has been awful and our days have mostly been spent hanging around the house watching TV or catching up on sleep.

The weekend has been rather tough with one thing or another. The children have been out of sorts and not in the mood for anything. I’m sure we will back to business as usual next week.

Here are my favourite photo’s of the children this week.


In our house we often express our love through food. Daisy made this beautiful spread for our cat Mo, I think it portrays her kindness perfectly. I think kindness is the most important thing you can teach a child to be.


Jake is still enjoying his new found freedom without the buggy. I’m yet to buy him his own umbrella but he had great fun using his sisters. It was so windy so he did really well to keep hold of it by himself.

      Too much fun, lets just say he was reluctant to give it back to his sister.

    We’re totally with you on picnics for the cat. I can’t even count how often our cat Harry had to ‘eat’ Amy’s five-course dinners 😀 #livingarrows

      I dread to think how fat our cat would get if it were real food !

    My 2 year old insisted on taking her umbrella on the school run this morning, even though it wasn’t raining at all. Little ones just seem to love umbrellas! x #LivingArrows

    Love the idea of picnics with your cat! I may have to try that one with Chase – He adores our two girls #LivingArrows

    Daisy’s photo is so full of kindness – you can see how much she loves the cat. And Jake’s photo could be our week this week! Cute x

    It looks like Mo the cat is really enjoying the the food Daisy has made. Jake looks like he is having a great time exploring the elements.

    I simply love seeing photos of children and their pets, ours has a real bond with our dog and it’s so sweet to see your two together #LivingArrows

    Awww lovely, natural photos. These remind me, I must buy E a new umbrella as I snapped her Peppa Pig one in the boot of the car.
