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.
I can’t quite believe that we’ve already had a whole week since our holiday. This summer is disappearing so quickly! We’ve had a couple of days where we’ve chilled out at home, but most days we’ve been out somewhere, doing something!
M’s photograph is a selfie that I took with her on the beach at Winterton-on-Sea, on Monday. I love her smile! This beach is very special to us, because it’s where Matthew proposed to me five years ago. There was something rather lovely about sitting in that same spot, watching our two children playing in the sand in front of us. How much can change in five years!
B’s photograph was taken on Friday in the play area at the pub where we had lunch after going blueberry picking near King’s Lynn. She is such a daredevil when it comes to play areas, and this photograph pretty much sums up her attitude to slides! B doesn’t seem to have any fear, and throws herself down them with a huge grin on her face.
This week, we’ve got some boring jobs to do, but I’m sure we’ll also have some more lovely days out to make the most of the last couple of weeks of the holiday.
