Living Arrows 4/52 {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.


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.

    Even though we know it’s coming the independence just seems to sneak up on you doesn’t it!

    Doing their homework themselves is a sad day but also so handy when you have to try and help the others too. I love those activity bags – I said it last week but it’s a great idea.

      Yes, so helpful when you have other kids to help too x

    Ahhh I remember how exciting it was to lose a tooth! Also, those pebbles look great for story and imaginative play!

      She was very excited at the prospect of the tooth fairy coming and leaving her some pennies !

    How old is your son? My 3 year old pretends to be a ninja all the time these days. I find it so funny!

      He’s almost 5 and makes us laugh with his ninja moves !

    I do love the activity packs which the children bring home. My daughters have brought a few home from preschool before but sadly some of the pieces have been missing prior to them lending them out! #LivingArrows

      We have had a few with missing pieces too, I just improvise with what we have then let the teachers know x

    They always look so engrossed in what they’re doing and so studious too! x

    They both look totally engrossed in what they are doing. Daisy especially looks so grown up.

    I love the idea of the activity bags much better on the homework front than the spelling lists we get. Monkey has his first wobbly tooth and it seems to be taking ages to come out! #livingarrows

      Aww hope it comes out soon with lots of wobbling x
