“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.
This weeks photo of Jake is pretty much the same as last weeks, he came home on Friday from school with another activity bag. As we had a quiet weekend planned he’s had plenty of time to do all the activities which this time revolved all around the book Peter’s Pebbles.
The rest of the weekend he’s had fun playing on a little skateboard I picked up from the charity shop as well as pretending to be a ninja. As much as we love having outside adventures it’s nice sometimes to stay home and let the kids entertain themselves.
Daisy lost her second tooth this week, she now has a big gap in her bottom set of teeth. While it was wobbly she was avoiding certain foods, choosing only what she could chew in the side of her mouth. On Wednesday morning she excitedly declared that she would be having a bowl of cereal instead of toast.
This weekend she has enjoyed playing, listening to CD’s on her music player and reading her new book she chose from a little independent book shop that’s opened locally. She’s also finished her homework, needing absolutely no help from me or her dad. Her dad and I are starting to feel a little redundant the more independent she becomes but it is lovely to watch her grow in confidence.
