Living Arrows 44/52

“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.


Jake had lots of fun this week scooping out his pumpkin ready for carving. He drew a face on it so Daddy could carve it for him. He doesn’t like getting his hands messy so he used a big spoon instead.

This is the first year that he’s been old enough to fully take part in our family traditions. I love seeing him getting involved, he really is a very hands on little guy.


This photo was taken for a review but I had to use it for this weeks living arrows. It sums up Daisy perfectly, she loves to read and you can see how much joy it brings her in this photo I think.

I really need to follow her example as besides blogs and bedtime stories I haven’t picked up a book and read in ages.

If you enjoyed this weeks post you might also like Living Arrows 43/52.

    Daisy sounds just like Athena – always with her nose in a book! She reads in every spare second and it looks like Daisy is really enjoying her book. It’s so nice that Jake is at an age where he can start to really get involved x

    Love that photo of Daisy. That was me as a girl too (and now, although less so than before).
