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.

Oh what a glorious weekend it’s been! I hope you all had the mothering Sunday you wanted. Ours was interesting, Dave was away for the weekend so it was just the kiddos and I. The Sunday was super cool, Betsy made me a bowl of cornflakes for breakfast and handed me a couple of cards she made at school and kept secret and we had a brilliant day out exploring a part of London, but I’ll post about that another day because this week’s Living Arrows is all about the day we went to our local farm. Forty Hall Farm held their annual lambing weekend, and what a weekend to hold it! It was sunny and warm, the perfect day to celebrate spring.

The sheep were the obvious main attraction with lambs that were only a day or so old and with some sheep shearing on display too. But there were also cows and goats to see, crafts to make and inside the barn were more crafts and storytelling too.

But actually, the best part of the day was just being outside with the kiddos and enjoying the sun. We had walked down the lane a little, ate our picnic and drank hot chocolate while listening to the birds and spotting the blossom. We explored the little woodland area and jumped in (and got stuck in, for Arthur) muddy puddles. All rather wonderful.
