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.
It’s the holidays! Whoop! Last week passed by in a flash as we started the week with M’s final preschool sessions of the year, followed by her preschool end of term show. Then suddenly Matthew was home from work and it was the holidays! We celebrated with a barbecue dinner and spent the final part of the week trying to keep cool in the heat. We set up this cooling tuff spot for the girls, which went down a treat!
This week, the photographs of the girls were taken on Saturday when we had some welcome cooler weather! We went to a garden centre with a beautiful rose garden (Peter Beale’s near Attleborough). The garden was stunning and full of stunning arches, bordered walkways and even a pond with a little bridge over it.
Of course, the girls were in their absolute element and were off exploring enthusiastically as soon as we set foot in the garden. Consequently, I have lots of photographs of them running away from me! Fortunately the cooler, wetter weather meant that it was pretty much empty, so we weren’t disturbing anyone.
Yesterday was our wedding anniversary, so we left the girls with their grandparents and had an afternoon to ourselves. I can’t remember the last time that we did this, and it was lovely to eat some lunch without endless distractions and focus properly on each other. Of course it was lovely to come home to the girls, and we’re looking forward to lots of lovely family time over the next month or so.
How has the start of your holidays been?
