Living Arrows 8/52 {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.


I always ask the kids what they would like to do in the school holidays and top of Jake’s list was junk modelling. He loves anything to do with building and construction and always knows exactly what he wants to make. I saved up lots of boxes, tubes and tubs throughout the week, then let the kids loose with string, sticky tape and glue. Jake had a brilliant time and made a zoomer rocket car.

Inspired by his junk model Jake asked daddy to get some big boxes from work. They spent Sunday afternoon constructing a batmobile much to Jake’s delight, next he wants to build a space rocket. I love how enthusiastic he is about his ideas, it’s lovely to watch his imagination take shape.


Poor Daisy had a rough start to the week with the chickenpox, we were stuck at home too but that didn’t stop her getting outside in the garden. She spent lots of time jumping on the trampoline and decorating the outside walls and garden paths with chalk.

We had an unexpected trip to the dentist on Thursday as we though Daisy might have an abscess. Thankfully it turned out to just be a nasty ulcer, I’m glad we went to get it checked though. While we were out we called at the library where she found two books in a series she’s loving at the moment.

We’ve had a quiet but lovely half term, sometimes it’s nice to just stay home and enjoy each others company.

    1. Sometimes their creations live on their bookshelves, sometimes they go back in the recycle bin (if I can get away with it). I think it’s more the fun they have creating than the finishes model x

  1. Awwh, bless her. Is it easier having chicken pox when they’re a bit older? My boys both had it really young (2 and a half, and 1 year old) and I had to stay in the hospital for 3 days with the 1 year old.
