Living Arrows 41/52

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

by Kahlil Gibran

Alice’s school in next to a park and every day I get asked if they can go in with Alice saying ‘just 10 minutes mummy’. With the afternoons being so lovely this week we have to make the most of it.

Alice has been able to swing from these bars for a while and this week, Holly managed to do it too. She was so happy!



Look how happy a go on the swings makes her, how can I say ‘no’!

    Oh, that’s lovely! A quick trip to the park is one of the best things about school pick ups, surely? Alice has such a beautiful smile. And how amazing is Holly on those bars?!

    So lovely! My son’s school often leaves the playground open so we can pop in after picking them up which is really nice, burn off the last of their energy! x #LivingArrows

    Oh how lovely. I really like the fact that children get so much pleasure from something as simple as a park, especially in this day and age of entertainment usually being tech based!

    Lovely park pictures. I do wish that N would get the hang of swinging on his own. He’s known the theory for ages, but just can’t grasp the body motion. #livingarrows
