Living Arrows 25/52


“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

by Kahlil Gibran

I’ve loved seeing other people’s contributions to the lovely Living Arrows series and so I wanted to start taking part too! Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood and each post I will be sharing a moment, or series of moments from our weekend.

This weekend for father’s day we made a visit to Hinton Amper National Trust – a house and gardens near Winchester in Hampshire. On arriving we were told that they had a haybale maze, perfect for toddlers so we headed straight there.

Max could not have been more excited by the maze! The bales were the perfect height to make it challenging for him, but meant that he could still see over, so it wasn’t too intimidating, and the maze makers had obviously considered their target audience, as there were only a couple of dead ends which made it easily negotiable. I love watching Max and his Daddy make their way through the maze together – it reminded me how lucky Max is to have such a wonderful Dad in his life.

When they got to the end Max was full of clapping and hi-fives to celebrate his big achievement! Of course, he then wanted to go back through again to the start!
