Living Arrows #30

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”

This week has been an interesting one as the boys are settling around Hannah's children whilst they're here for a few weeks this summer. However, they have also carried on individually.

James continues to find beauty and enjoyment in the little things at the moment. As we're currently investigating space this summer there are a lot of craft and science aspects featured and he is the happiest in the craft moments. The enjoyment of sitting and sharing in a sun different colours is much more up his street. 

On another bonus, he seems less likely to clash with Will this week which is a blessing!

William's interest in cooking took an interesting turn tbis week when he wanted to explore gutting and prepping a fish. 

It was definitely a lesson that was interesting and supported his love of cooking and food origins but I think it's possible something that won't happen too often. 

His interest in meticulously finding out where things come from or how they are made is definitely featuring more heavily at the moment. Not too sure if this is just his age or a personality spike but I suppose time will tell. 

How has your week been?

I think it's brilliant that William wants to learn where things come from. It leads to more mindful consumption which is brilliant, if we were all more mindful about where our food comes from the world would be a better place.

I think William is so brave for prepping and gutting a fish. Ugh I hated doing it! But what a great week and I'm glad that the kids are all calm! :)
