Living Arrows 40/52

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

by Kahlil Gibran

I can’t believe we are on week 40, only 12 more weeks left of this year!

My photos this week are from a walk through the woods. Holly is obsessed with sticks and seeks them out, normally she says they are stickman and we have to bring them home. But, this time she said it was her walking stick. I just love her little imagination.


On walks Alice is all about finding a tree she can climb. There wasn’t that many great climbing trees this time, but she still found one.

    Great climbing shot. I wish N was more into climbing trees. It’s like he can’t see them so doesn’t climb them without me encouraging him

    I love Holly with the walking stick! I think I said before, my nephew does the same impression of his great grandad, complete with hunching over, it’s so funny!

    I love that picture with the walking stick – Toby’s sticks are usually wands at the moment! #LivingArrows
