Living Arrows #27

Sometimes I take hundreds of photos of the boys and other times I barely take any. I decided that this year would be one where I try to capture a consistent amount and document them more. It made sense then that I join in with Donna's linky, Living Arrows.

"Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”



We've been taking advantage this last week of the great weather and getting out as much as we can. 

Admittedly, it does put us out on our home education schedule but if we can't just jump out and enjoy the weather then when can we? 


James continues to be in a stage where he must challenge me. This week has highlighted this even more for me where he has literally been mouthing me back at every opportunity. 

He clearly is just testing his position within the household again but the constant challenging is rather tiresome. 

Being outside though does make him happier than normal; his freedom to explore and be adventurous whilst almost going "feral" really seems to be perfect for him. 


William has had a few emotional moments this week. Everything seems normal for him but I am wondering if it is the close of the term getting to him. 

We work really hard each term both at schooling and at home so I wonder if he is just getting tired. 

I think the moments spent outside have been great for him; just to be out and carefree is sometimes something all children must need. 

How has your week been?
