Living Arrows 46/52 {2017}

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

by Kahlil Gibran

Yesterday we wrapped up warm and headed out for the remembrance parade. Alice loves being a Rainbow and she was chosen to escort the Rainbows flag. She was very excited and also really proud.

I love this photo of her, you can just see the proudness jumping out at you!



Holly and I have a little routine on a Friday, we head off to her ballet class which she loves. Then it’s back home and she plays with her toys. Some weeks its Peppa Pig and other weeks it’s Paw Patrol. She is so different to Alice and absolutely loves to sit and play with them. She will make games up and sit for ages.

This week it was a Peppa Pig week. She is a lucky girl and has inherited not only Alice’s Peppa Pig toys, but also all her cousin Ruby’s Peppa Pig toys. She loves it!

    Love Holly with all her toys! Despite Max’s love of all the Paw Patrol, he’s really not gone much on his Peppa Pig house, so I’ve never bought any more. We seem to be collecting every Paw Patrol thing there is though – season 5 has just come on Amazon Prime and the first thing he said when watching it was “Air Patroller… I need an Air Patroller!” Love Alice too – you’re right, she looks just so utterly proud! #livingarrows

    We’ve applied for J to become a rainbow but there’s such a massive waiting list in our area that I just don’t think she’ll get it. She looks very proud here #LivingArrows

    Well done to Alice. That’s such a lovely thing to do. Love the photo of Holly this week. Just like Holly my little girl also loves to play and make up stories on her own. My son on the other hand not so much. he needs someone with him and prefers to play with another person or child. #livingarrows

    I love that Alice was chosen to escort the flag, how lovely, I bet you were proud too. And those pepper pig toys, wow what a collection! I can spot a few of the sets that have been recommended to us for Avas Christmas presents, we have a few already and I’m impressed at how robust it is! I love your hello sign in the background too xx

    Oh Alice looks so, so proud and I love how sweet Holly is with toys – actually sitting and playing independently x

    Oh my word I’d better not show that photo of Holly to Nerys, she would be so jealous of her Peppa Pig toy collection! Such a lovely photo of Alice this week, she really does look so proud. x #LivingArrows

    Aww well done Alice, she definitely looks proud as punch! That is an impressive Peppa collection, I know a little girl who would LOVE to play with all of those! xx

    What beautiful pictures of the girls. There are benefits to being the second born, Kipper is happily inheriting a lot of Monkey’s toys as well x #LivingArrows
