Living Arrows 2017 18/52

The Living Arrows project took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”.

Every week, I shall be posting a photo taken the week before and I can’t wait to see the collection at the end of the year. 

This week’s photo:

Oh, this boy is growing up. Toys don’t seem to have any appeal to Bear at the moment. It’s almost as though he has grown out of playing in that sense? He plays at school, all afternoon. It’s his favourite time of the school day as he tells me most days. He is not looking forward to year 1, when he has to work more and play less!

I digress. Bear’s play shouldn’t surprise me, he is so like me as a child. I was always outside, climbing trees, falling out of trees, riding my bike down huge hills without brakes, you name it, I put my poor Mum through the worry of the danger.

Basically, all Bear wants to do now is be outside. Football – we have to take one wherever we go and he adores his Sunday’s with his Dad as they play for hours. His bike still features heavily, along with his climbing frame and trampoline in the garden but on Saturday, I took him to a fab skate park that we found in the Easter holidays. When we first went, we didn’t have scooters so I promised to take him back.

He loved it and scooted for hours. He made new friends (I am so proud of his ability to do this) and hung out with all the cool big kids. He did however say his first swear word at the park (sh*t) so I’m not sure how good an idea it is. What can you do though? I’ve told him that only grown ups are allowed to say those types of words and drummed in the fact that he can not say that at School…….ooops.

Thanks for reading,

Love,

    Oh dear! It’s a shame that some adults don’t watch their language around children. As you say though, there’s not much you can do about it other than to educate Bear about it, as you have done. #LivingArrows

    That’s some serious concentration on his face! It’s a good thing he wants to be outside all the time though I think. My daughter is the same. Unless Paw Patrol is on TV that is!! #LivingArrows

    So much focus on that scooter. N was the same in reception. All he did was pretty much play in the outdoor learning area all day every day. But this year he looks down on the reception ones because they ‘just play’ #livingarrows

    I love the look of absolute determination on his face and he really does look older than his years! x
