#LivingArrows – Happy days

And that’s a wrap on the Easter holidays, back to school, back to routine. I can’t quite believe that this little fella is about to step into the final term of Year 1. It feels a little surreal – if it wasn’t for having some really exciting plans in the next few months I would be asking time to stand still. As cliché as it sounds I just cannot believe how quickly time is swooshing by, how are we nearly at the end of Year 1?

It literally feels like yesterday when I waved him off on the first day of him being a Year 1 student, yet when I pick him up from School tomorrow he will be nearing the end of Year 1. I am saying it out loud for all to hear – I.Am.Not.Ready – since he started School the weeks just fly by.

As each week passes he seems to take another step away from being my baby, and then on a weekend like the one we have just had where it was just him and me he reminds me just how much he is still my little boy. We have had the most gorgeous of weekends, it has been lovely cocooned in our little mummy and son bubble. This boy fills my mummy heart to the brim and it would appear those around us too.

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Gibran. The original quote used to describe this gorgeous photography project. For me it is about capturing childhood, specifically through our gorgeous boys eyes. Whether a portrait of him and his toothless smile, capturing a moment in time for the memory bank or quite simply watching him enjoy his childhood.

If you missed our previous posts you can catch up on our 2017 Living Arrows here. I have added this week’s post to Donna’s #LivingArrows over on her blog What The Redhead Said.
