I’VE set myself a few challenges for 2017 – for myself, for us as a family and for my blog. One of these is to try and be more consistent with what and when I post here. To try and help this along, one of the things I plan to do is join in with a couple of blog projects. This is the first – Living Arrows.
It’s a photo-based project run by What the Redhead Said blog, and took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. The aim is to post one or more photos each week that capture a moment of childhood. It’s simple enough that I shouldn’t give up after a couple of weeks, and will hopefully make me start sharing photos that might not be from a memorable trip or a special occasion, but the ordinary little moments that I don’t want to forget.
So here’s week one…
These were taken on an afternoon walk to the park, where we tend to go if we have no plans and want to get out of the house for an hour. One this visit we didn’t tell Santi my parents were meeting us there, and he was so excited to see my father. He spotted a man walking along the path and said he was going to “roar at him” … he had a bit of a shock when the man turned around and roared first!
I love how I’ve captured the moment Santi spotted gramps.
Ezra loves being out and about, and nosing around from his pram. He’s so happy just watching Santi playing, but he already loves the slide and it won’t be long before he’s running around too! On this afternoon it was too cold to stay long so we kept him snuggled up while we were out.
That’s it for this week … pop back next week to see if I manage to join in with Living Arrows again! If you’d like to see the posts other bloggers are joining in with, just click on the image below…
