Living Arrows 17/52

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

by Kahlil Gibran

This last week has had it’s ups and downs, starting with Alice finding out she got her school place, but realising that the journey for us isn’t over. And ended with us in Italy…I know, I told you it was a rollercoaster week!

But, in the middle of that we had lots of normal everyday moments and my picture this week captures that perfectly. My girls love to read, Holly really is a little bookwormEvery morning is the same, Holly will come into Alice’s room with a book and sit on her sisters bed to look at it. There is nothing better than your big sister’s bed! Alice really is the best big sister and is a real motherly type. She will often sit with Holly and read the book to her…

    Very very cute! Alice does seem like a really good big sister, anything like that would always end in an argument between my two, usually Mabel complaining because Greta’s not doing it ‘right’ whatever that is…

      Thank you hun. She is a great big sister, they do have their moments like all siblings, but generally she is very good with Holly x

    Your girls always look like they share such a bond. Mine have a similar age gap and it’s lovely.
