Living Arrows 28/52 (2022)

Despite my best intentions I’m still writing this post at the last minute again. I feel like I haven’t stopped for weeks now and I’m constantly worrying that I’ve forgotten something important! Still we’ve only got 4 more days at school to go and then hopefully I’ll have time to catch my breath a bit…

After being at Cub Camp at the beginning of the month, I spent the next weekend at a Beaver Sleepover. That was only one night at least because I didn’t get an awful lot of sleep!

Gabe was at the Beaver Sleepover too and he absolutely loved it, even if he was exhausted by the time he came home. The whole event was pirate themed, and this photo was taken when Gabe was practising his ‘walking the plank’ (which explains why he’s holding his nose!)

On Monday it was Toby’s birthday – I can’t quite believe I’m the mum of a 9 year old!! He was at school on his birthday but we managed to find time to open some presents before we went. We had his choice of meatballs for tea, followed by a caterpillar cake. The boys’ are having a joint party next weekend so we’ll do some more celebrating then…

I’ll leave it there for now because I’ve actually already got the photos ready for my next Living Arrows post so I’m going to write that one now too!

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” .
