Living Arrows 38/52

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

by Kahlil Gibran

Last week Alice was only at school for the morning, which meant that we had the afternoons all together. We’ve had mainly quiet afternoons at home, as Alice has been tired. But, I knew the sunny days would be gone soon and we took a trip to the park with my mum one lovely sunny afternoon.

Alice is too brave sometimes and my heart was in my mouth when she climbed right to the top!


While we were there, Holly found Stick Man. And, yes he had to come home with us…

    Such lovely captures. My hear would also have been in my mouth. Lol I couldn’t help but have a little giggle at Holly having to bring Stick man home, as it’s something my Holly would do too.xx #livingarrows

    Wow, that is some serious bravery there in your top photo! Great photos. I have a daughter obsessed with sticks and it’s always so difficult to convince her not to bring them into the house! #livingarrows

    Ah bless, adorable. And this photo really shows the difference a couple of years makes. From a two year old messing about with the sticks on the floor, to a grown up four year old at the top of the climbing frame. Bless them both.

    I love that shot of Alice at the top of that climbing frame – it looks so high! She’s a much braver girl than me! Holly is so cute with her stick as well – it’s definitely one of the favourite toddler ‘toys’ isn’t it!
