Living Arrows 10/52

 “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” 

by Kahlil Gibran

This week has been a week of snuggly days at home, meeting friends and ending on Mother’s Day. We spent it together at home and in the afternoon both sets of grandparents came over for cake and tea.

Holly has always loved playing with her toys and more recently she has the concentration to spend time completing a puzzle. She sat here and did her butterfly puzzle four times and was very happy with herself each time she finished.

Alice loves to take a toy or book for show and tell at preschool, she gets very excited at the chance to show her friends something that she loves. Here she is just before we were about leave reading her Frozen book, I love how relaxed she looks, but she looks so grown up here and I am not ready for that.

    Love the look of that butterfly puzzle and my little one loves lying on the floor to do everything!

      It’s a lovely puzzle, lots of different learning elements with colours and shapes. They are funny lying on the floor all the time x

    I love how engrossed she is in that puzzle! My eldest has just started to sprawl herself out over the floor too, it makes me smile 🙂

      She sat there for ages! It’s funny sometimes she looks uncomfortable, but tells me she loves it!
