Living Arrows 5/52 {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.


On Saturday afternoon we went exploring to find a walled garden that I’d recently realised was fairly local to us. The grounds were absolutely beautiful, there were 3 huge ponds each frozen from the recent cold weather. Daisy spotted a few ducks huddling on the embankment for warmth, she also spotted some fish swimming beneath the ice.

Daisy has had another good week as school, and at home she’s enjoying learning how to play the keyboard with daddy. We were also treated to a performance of one of the little songs she’s been writing, complete with ukulele I definitely think music will play a big role in her future.


Much to Jake’s delight we found a few spots at the walled garden where the snowfall from earlier in the week hadn’t melted. I caught this cheeky face just after he had launched a snowball at daddy and Daisy. I really wish we had as much snow as other parts of the country, the kids would love to be able to build a snowman and have a proper snowball fight.

    We had very little snow too which was a huge disappointment. Although we did end up finding some by accident. The walled garden sounds a great place to explore x

    It’s so weird to see how some people got a lot of snow and some got none. I definitely feel sorry for the ones that didn’t get any snow because I know how much children love it.

      The kids would have loved it, I’m hoping we get some before Spring starts.

    It sounds like you found a lovely place to visit. We had hardly any snow here – the boys were very disappointed. #LivingArrows

      It’s such a shame isn’t it, hopefully there will be another downpour before Spring.

    They both look so happy with what they are doing! I would love more snow too – we didn’t get enough to do anything with!

      They were very excited to find that little bit of snow, hope we all get some more soon.

    Sounds like you all enjoyed the adventure outdoors. Hubby felt there was very little snow too. I wonder how our country would cope with -40 like Canada. #LivingArrows

      Can you imagine, things would come to a stand still wouldn’t they. The kids would be delighted though.

    Love that photo of Jake, he looks so gleeful! We had barely any snow at all which we were all so disappointed about! x #LivingArrows

      It was disappointing wasn’t it, I hope we get some more before Spring.

    Oh Angela your photos are gorgeous! Look at their happy little faces. They always look as happy outdoors as they do crafting and learning indoors. They are having such a wonderful childhood x
