Living Arrows 39/52 {2017}

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

by Kahlil Gibran

Last week Holly and I headed over to the lovely Katy’s house for a Toy Story party for her son. Holly had such a lovely time and they were all really sweet together. Katy took this photo of my little Holly and I just love her little face in it.

This photo of Alice sums up her week. She has been really tired and has fallen asleep within minutes of going to bed. I took this photo on Thursday night, she had been to Rainbows and she came home exhausted. I often battle with myself over her doing things after school or not, but she is always so desperate to do them and has so much fun. This week they did gardening and she planted some bulbs in some pots.

    I think September is such a tiring month for kids, getting back into a routine after summer can be hard for them. It’s great that she loves doing things after school.

    These are both such sweet photos! My two have both seemed so tired since they’ve started back at school, I think it’s good though, it always seems like a good kind of tired! x #LivingArrows

    Meme does so many after school activities and I’m never sure if she does a little too much at times – but she is always desperate to do them and always has so much energy I feel a little mean saying no. Gorgeous picture of your Holly #livingarrows

    I think children are just meant to spend their whole time exhausted – Athena and Troy are the same on swimming day! Holly is so cute in that photo! x

    Alive looks so peaceful. I think september is such a tiring month for children and parents getting back into the school routine. Not that we ourselves are at that stage yet.

    Holly’s photo is so cute it looks as though she had a great time.

    Such lovely pictures as always. Both mine are exhausted at the moment too – half way to half term though!

    We’ve tried desperately to get J into Rainbows but the waiting list is so long! #LivingArrows

    The party looked like great fun. I know what you mean about the after school clubs, I have the same battle in my head with Monkey and his clubs. x
