Living Arrows 29/52 {2019}

July 22, 2019

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 passed by in a flash! We did lots of rushing to preschool but also had some nice times in the gardening. It’s lovely now that the girls are a little older, as they will happily play in the garden while I do some gardening. I’m trying to add more plants to our garden to make it a bit more pretty and bee-friendly.

We had a bit of a milestone this week as it was M’s last Hartbeeps class. She’ll be starting five mornings at preschool in September, so won’t be able to attend classes anymore. M had a fabulous time dressing up as a pirate (with a purple headscarf, of course), but it was very bittersweet. She’s growing up so quickly!

B’s photograph was taken in Cromer, on Sunday afternoon. On Sunday morning, Matthew ran in Run Norwich 10k, so we went to cheer him on. But after that, he had to go to his work’s end of year lunch, so the girls and I went to the beach with my parents for the afternoon.

We had a picnic on the beach and had lots of fun playing in the sand. It was such a busy but beautiful day. Hopefully we’ll have lots more beautiful days like this over the summer, as Matthew has just three days left at work. We can’t wait!

    I hope you can enjoy lots of family time together.

  2. They’re both getting so big so quickly! The time flies doesn’t it. x #LivingArrows

      I know, they’re growing so fast! B seems to have grown up much faster than M as she’s started walking a lot earlier and all of her teeth have come through early, too. Such a little girl already!

    Loved reading your living arrows this week, you have beautiful children.
    I haven’t been to the beach in such a long time I will definitely make this a must this summer holidays, my kids would love it.

      Thank you. We love going to the beach and I imagine we’ll be there every few days over the summer holidays. Hopefully it won’t be tooooo hot, though!

    Oh I’ve loved your updates on those classes. It always sounds like she had such a great time – what an end of an era! x

    It’s lovely to get out into the garden, although I dare say I will be finished gardening by Autumn! I always tackle it too late. Beautiful children xx

      I’m like that too! I tend to just do things when I think of it rather than when you’re ‘supposed’ to. Luckily the plants seem to manage okay with me hacking at them at random times of the year! x

  6. It’s so lovely that you get to have him home for the Summer. I am sure you will have the best time. Super scary that they will be going to school this firm next year! Xx

    Lovely pictures of them both this week – it’s always a bit sad when they finish their baby and toddler classes isn’t it? I’m sure M will enjoy more Preschool come September though, and it will be nice for you to have more one on one time with B too 🙂

    • Jules says:

      Yes, I’m looking forward to getting more of a sense of routine once M is at preschool for five mornings instead of three afternoons. At least I get to go to more toddler classes with B – I think it will hit me a lot harder when she finishes them!
