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!
