Living Arrows 24/52 (2022)

I don’t really have much to say this week. We’re back at school now and getting back into the routine. I think we’re definitely on the countdown to the summer holidays now though – only 25 school days to go! (And yes, I did count them!)

This week’s photos were taken at our latest family forest school session. We hadn’t been for a few months because we always seemed to have other things on so it was lovely to get back into the woods. Toby spent most of his time playing on a rope swing – I must have taken 50 photos trying to get a good one of him swinging where he wasn’t just a big blur! I managed to this one when he was still for a few seconds…

I mentioned before that Toby doesn’t really like having his picture taken these days, and when he does let me he usually pulls a silly face so it’s nice to get a genuine smile, even if it is slightly blurry!

Gabe is a much more willing model most of the time and will happily pose for photos when I ask him…

We’ve got a busy month or so coming up now with birthday parties, Cub and Beaver camps, some Scout Leader training for me, Toby’s and my mum’s birthdays and then the boys’ joint birthday party on the weekend we break up from school for the summer!

I hope you’re enjoying this lovely weather we’ve having, although I’m one of those people already complaining that it’s too hot, especially when I have to go to work!

This is my ninth year taking part in this linky celebrating childhood, based on a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” .

  1. I love your forest school updates, I wish A and T could go to something like that locally. I’m the same as you – properly counting down to the summer! x
