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.
This week, M had her first full week at preschool. She only attends in the mornings, though, so she still had plenty of time at home with me and B. M’s photograph was taken on Tuesday afternoon during an impromptu trip to the park .
M had a great time on the slide, and her main focus on this trip was teaching B how to go down the slide on her tummy, feet first. Of course B is a bit of a daredevil and as soon as she saw what M was doing, she copied her. M was thrilled at having taught B this new skill and I think this photograph shows how much fun she was having.
B’s photograph was taken at her Hartbeeps class on Thursday morning. It was the first time B has ever been to a baby or toddler class without M, and I was interested to see how she would find it. She was quite subdued, but I think that had quite a lot to do with the fact that she came down with a cold at the end of last week, so she wasn’t feeling her best.
This week, we don’t really have any exciting plans, but I’m keen to do some more organising to improve the toy rotation set up that I started last week. The girls have a lot of toys, so with me luck!
