My second week of Living Arrows
“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Gibran
Summer holidays have officially started for Leo but the girls still have today and tomorrow to go until we can start our holidays together, I am really looking forward to no school runs for the next six weeks but dreading the chaos that comes with it. Yesterday I went on my usual weekly food shop and I stocked up snacks and picnic-ey type foods so that getting out the house and having lunches sorted was a lot easier. I have set myself a mini-goal to visit the part at least once a week during the school holidays, let’s see if I can do it.
Emily found out that she had passed her very first ballet exam last week which was awesome and she is very happy to receive her Rosette in September. We took the kids to a special party on Saturday night to celebrate 21 years of Harmony majorettes, I remember being there when it all started 21 years ago and it really makes me happy to know that Lydia is now part of something that was such a huge part of her mum’s life.
Saturday day time we went to David’s parent’s house for a family gathering where his Dad, two sisters and their kids all get together for a big catch up as they don’t live in Peterborough. It was lovely seeing them play with their cousins and catching up with the family.
On Sunday we took the kids and Rosie to a local park to get some fresh air. Leo went off with David to walk and play ball with Rosie whilst I stayed in the sandpit and paddling pool with the girls.
Here are some of my favourite photos from the week.
