“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran. We’ve been fortunate that the weather has been so kind for the majority of lockdown. It was a great motivation for all of us to get homeschool finished so we can enjoy the sunny afternoons in the garden this week.
The paddling pool has been even more of a hit now we have invested in a pool cover, filter pump and a solar mat. It’s a great bribe for getting through their work and out into the garden in the afternoons. This photo was taken when Dougie had a day off and led homeschool for the day. He announced it’s not that easy at the end of the day. I have been telling him that for the past 10 weeks!
We had fun on Friday afternoon trying out the rain cloud in a jar that I had spotted on Pinterest. Our jars looked more like storm clouds than rainbow coloured rain jars! They enjoyed injecting the shaving foam with food colouring and Teddy really was engaged with seeing how much water it takes to make a downpour.
We have spent most of the Bank Holiday weekend at home but we did venture out into the Howardian Hills for a lovely quiet countryside walk. The crops in the fields were so long the kids said it was like the Bear Hunt walk, so I’m ending this week’s Living Arrows with a picture of our Bear.
Hope you had a lovely Bank Holiday and if you missed last week’s Living Arrows you can find uit here.
