Living Arrows – 18/09

“You are the bows from which your child as living arrows are sent forth – Kahlil Gibran”

It has been a few weeks now since I last took part in Living Arrows. Life has been pretty busy for us all and to be perfectly honest my head just wasn’t in the right frame to do any blog posts. We took a much needed break and it is fair to say we are back!

This week has been a pretty plain week. Shaniah spent the majority of the week poorly, leaving us unable to do much except cuddle on the sofa and watch hours of Cbeebies and films.

Once she was back to her usual bouncy self she asked if we could take a ride on the bus, what a random yet cool idea to do?!

Bus Smiles

Once we got off the bus Shaniah saw a pile of leaves that of course naturally any child would want to jump in – not just children I still love kicking up the leaves!

Autumn walks

Later in the week we also decided to take a trip to my Nan’s. Shaniah asked if she could take her baby and pram so she did.

Walk through the country

…We the took a trip to the park where Shaniah decided to show us that fear really doesn’t phase her.

Play fun at park

Looking back through the week doing this post really made me realise that one of these days she isn’t going to want to do all this. One day she will be too cool to ride the bus with her mum. She wont need cuddles on the sofa when she is poorly and she certainly wont push a doll in a pushchair in a few years to come, That truly makes my heart sink, why do they have to grow up?

    Oh I love a bit of leaf kicking although annoyingly my 6yo isn’t that keen. Strange child #livingarrows

    She’s so beautiful, lovely photos! I’ve never taken Ava on the bus, maybe this week I will, I think she’d love it x

    Some really beautiful pictures. So glad she’s better, and who doesn’t love a ride on a bus?! It’s such an adventure for children isn’t it? x
