You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth
– Kahlil Gibran
Another year of Living Arrows begins! I only started joining in with this photo project halfway through last year, so I’m really looking forward to capturing a whole year in 2017. I’ve loved that it’s encouraged me to capture photos of Max throughout the year and to really document all those little childhood moments. It’s lovely to look back over the year’s photos and see how much he’s changed and I can’t wait to do that at this time next year.
Our Christmas didn’t quite go as planned – Max came down with a nasty case of chickenpox on Christmas Eve, so lots of our plans had to change. But he dealt with it so well, and I loved seeing his little face when he realised that Father Christmas had brought him the fire engine he’d asked for! Watching him play with it for hours over Christmas made all the effort, all the hype, all the crazy running around, worth every second.
