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 a busy week and most of it was spent in anticipation of dressing up on Halloween, for M! It was her first ever dressing up day at preschool and she was so excited for it. I kept her outfit simple as I didn’t want to set the bar too high and end up having to create ever-increasingly-complicated and impressive costumes as she grows up!
B also got to do some dressing up on Thursday as we went to Hartbeeps. She doesn’t usually tolerate dressing up, but seeing M heading off to preschool in her costume must have made her reconsider, as she seemed to quite enjoy dressing up as a fairy.
M’s second highlight of the week was the Elf University in our local shopping centre (Chapelfield Norwich). We came across it by chance on Saturday, and M made the hat you can see in the photograph, with the help of Dot the elf. This photograph was taken on Sunday, though, as M was keen to go back for the second craft session, where she made a shaker.
M was really keen to have her photograph taken with Tinks the elf, she just wasn’t so great at looking at the camera! I think we’re going to have to go to all of the Elf University sessions, which are running on Thursday afternoons throughout November.
This week I’m looking forward to keeping our routine going and trying to get the house a bit more organised again. Let’s see if it happens!
