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.
Week 42? How can there be only 10 weeks left of this year?! It feels like the year has only just started, and yet we’re into the throes of pumpkin picking, oven traybakes and fruit crumbles. So it’s definitely Autumn!
Last week was yet another week with all of us fighting colds. M wasn’t able to have her preschool immunisations because she had a temperature, so no doubt we’ll now have to wait weeks for another appointment (we did try to rebook at the time, but they didn’t have any available).
M keeps asking me to take her photograph at the moment. But she always asks at non-photogenic times, like while she’s eating a boiled egg! So this week’s photograph was taken on the preschool run, while she was on the buggy board. It probably wasn’t cold enough for her to have her hood up, but this is how she likes to wear her coat at the moment!
B’s photograph was taken on Thursday, while we were playing in our Autumn exploration tuff spot. B enjoys a tuff spot just as much as M does, and she kept holding things up and saying, “look! Look!” Her language is really coming along now, and she was enjoying saying, “stick!” and, “stone!” although they weren’t stones, they were sweet chestnuts!
This week is half term week, so we’re looking forward to having some family time together. We haven’t made any plans except to have a family photoshoot. It was supposed to be today but it’s been rained off, so fingers crossed for better weather later in the week!
