You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. – Khalil Gibran

Living Arrows – a portrait a week of my two children.

It has been a while since I updated this blog and the event I took these photos at feels like a lifetime ago. We’ve had a super busy December! I’m exhausted already. Anyway, last weekend the kiddos and I travelled down to the Isle of Dogs and visited Mudchute Farm. They were having a Christmassy day with a Santa’s grotto, crafts and donkey rides. Art and Betsy wanted to wear their matching penguin t-shirts for the occasion. The day was lovely. It was popular, but never felt crowded, although the 30 minutes wait for food at the cafe was a bit too long (the people who run the cafe worked their socks off though, there’s no way you could have got your food any sooner, the sheer amount of people wanting to eat made sure of that). The farm is run by volunteers and everybody who helped out on this busy day seemed really happy to be there. There was a lot of Christmas spirit around!

The donkeys live on the farm and are super sweet (and really soft!)

Arthur didn’t want to meet Father Christmas, he absolutely refused to go into his room, but Betsy was WELL excited. She asked him for a bubble gun.

You may have noticed Arthur wearing a sling in these pictures. That’s because he broke his collarbone the previous Tuesday. He only fell off a dining chair and has had much worse falls, but the poor thing just fell awkwardly and off to the hospital he went. Amazingly a week later he has healed! I was amazed, the doctor unsurprised. It’s like Arthur is actually Wolverine or something.
