Living Arrows 25/52 (2022)

I’ve just realised it’s Friday night and I still haven’t written this week’s Living Arrows post! Life just feels very hectic at the moment and I don’t seem to have much time to do anything… This last week I’ve had a school governor meeting, taken Toby kayaking with Cubs (more of that later), had a haircut, a PTA meeting, a massage and had to go to Aldi because we had run out of pain au chocolat and Gabe’s life was over!

Despite everything we’ve got going on at the moment June seems to have been a long month. May absolutely flew by but it seems to have been June for ages already and we’ve still got a week of the month to go! The weather has been gorgeous for the last week at least though, and we’ve made the most of it by trying to get our unruly garden under control again so we can actually enjoy it!

After a busy weekend in the garden we decided to go out for a Father’s Day dinner on Sunday. We had a bit of a nightmare when the pub we’d booked told us there would be an hour and a half wait for food, only after we’d already been there over half an hour waiting to order! All was not lost as we went to a different pub up the road and had a lovely meal in the end. The boys were happy too because the second pub had a better play area than the first one too!

Gabe absolutely loves swinging at the moment – he was struggling with it a bit at Street Monkeys so a few weeks ago we bought a pull up bar and put it in the boys’ bedroom door frame…. and now all he wants to do is swing! He’s getting loads better at it though, maybe we’ll make a gymnast of him!

Toby climbing up a climbing frame in a playground

Toby’s confidence has come on loads lately too, especially when it comes to climbing things. I think he really got a taste for it at Cub Camp back in February and now he climbs but anything he can. He flew up this little wall on the play area at the pub. I really want to take him to Clip ‘n’ Climb soon – I think he’d love it!

Anyway, I’d better leave this here – it’s after midnight and I really should go to bed!

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” .
