Living Arrows 14/52


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

– Kahlil Gibran


As soon as I saw this photo I knew it had to be this week’s Living Arrows shot! Max is often a bit cautious about things – I rarely need to worry about him getting too close to water, climbing things, or jumping off of things which are too high. So I was really surprised when he decided his new favourite thing was jumping off of tree stumps in the park – some of them were pretty high up!

I love this photo of him just after he’d jumped from one – it’s such a look of triumph! The big smile, the clenched fists, everything about it just says “YESSSSSS!”

    This picture is amazing!!! So many emotions going on. Absolute pure joy from his face. It’s wonderful! My two eldest are both really cautious which I’m surprised about because I’m not a ‘helicopter’ parent at all. It’s just in their personality! #LivingArrows
