Every week I join in with Living Arrows, a blog linky run by Donna at What the Redhead Said. The name Living Arrows comes from a poem by Kahlil Gibran; “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”, and each Monday I share a photo of M, and one of B, and a bit about what we’ve been up to the previous week.
Last week was half term and it was absolutely wonderful. Matthew had a successful interview a few days before half term, and I think that good news coupled with some lovely weather has kept us all happy, all week.
M’s photograph was taken at How Hill, in the main gardens of the house. M was really taken with this owl carving. I love this photograph as M is really expressive when she talks, and her gesticulations are captured perfectly here. I also love the way that B is taking in everything that M is telling her about the owl.
B’s photograph was taken at Sheringham beach. Sheringham beach is a mixture of large pebbles, rocks and sand. B was completely enamoured with this big stone, and spent most of our time at the beach running around carrying it, then dropping it and picking it up again.
I have a feeling that today we’re very much going to come back down to Earth with a bump! Thank goodness we have the summer holidays to look forward to. Just seven and a half weeks to go!
