Every week I join in with Living Arrows, a blog linky run by Donna at What the Redhead Said. The name Living Arrows comes from a poem by Kahlil Gibran; “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”, and each Monday I share a photo of M, and one of B, and a bit about what we’ve been up to the previous week.
Last week, it felt like summer had finally arrived. We had M’s very first sports’ day, walks in the sunshine and a trip to the zoo at the weekend. That’s where M’s photograph was taken, as she watched the penguins being fed, from her vantage point on Matthew’s shoulders.
B’s photograph was taken at home while she was having a nap. She only takes naps on me, in the car or if I’m lucky, in her pram. Her favourite place to sleep is definitely on me, though, and I’m trying my best to enjoy it and not resent not being able to get on with the very long list of other things that I should be doing!
This week we’ll be mostly continuing the countdown until Matthew is off for the summer holidays, while also enjoying the routine of the school week, while we still have it. Hopefully we’ll also get to enjoy some more sunshine!
