Living Arrows – Jan 21st 2019

This is my third week taking part in living arrows with What the Redhead said and it’s really making me look at everything I do differently. In a positive way. I’m trying to create positive memories for my children – as we all are. By taking part in living arrows it’s inspiring me to capture their personalities more.

Lily

Lily’s living arrows picture was taken during our day out at Flip Out on Saturday (will be on the blog tomorrow) it completely summed up her week, but especially her weekend. She is always so busy throughout the week with school and out of school activities its nice to spend time with her on the weekend. However, this weekend wasn’t that simple. Her friend came round from Academy and we all went out to flip out. She then slept at her house and went to church with them and came home at 7pm this evening. Lily had an amazing time with her best friend and I’m so glad she has someone she can relate too.

Declan

Declan’s photo was taken yesterday morning before football. His determination to do better every week. He isn’t the best player in the team, but he is always trying to be better. Declan has got trainer of the week many times and when he plays he puts his heart into it. I am so proud of how hard he works and doing what he loves.

Harry

Harry’s picture is a little different this week. I had to pick one picture for Harry this week and he has been the best brother ever to Imogen. They are all fantastic with her, but Harry’s bond with her is amazing. Yesterday when she was crying he was crying too because he didn’t like to see her cry. When she was drawing on paper on the floor he got down with her to show her how to do it. I love how amazing he is with her and how much he adores her (and happily tells me he loves her more than anyone).

Imogen

Imogen’s picture had to be one from her DIY Cake Smash. I did have a hard time choosing one as I loved them all, but I thought this one sums her up. Loving food and making sure she eats every last crumb. It was so much fun doing this photo shoot with her and surprisingly easy. Although, at the end Lily pointed out that the backdrop was in a different language. I suppose that’s what you get for Β£4!!

  1. Oh Harry, you little cutie pie! πŸ˜­πŸ’›. I honestly didn’t notice the backdrop being in another language, I think it’s a wonderful photo β€” makes me wish I’d have persevered and had BB do a cake smash!

    1. He is a little cutie bless him! It took us a while – we did manage a few photos but I think this was my favourite (well today anyway!)

  3. Oh the cake smash looks so much fun! I love reading about your children and their different interests – it must be so hard to balance the wants and needs of their differing ages but it looks like you do a great job. I love the happy faces! x

    1. Thank you! It is hard but I think it also helps them to understand they can’t always do what they want and we need to compromise!

  4. It sounds like Lily and Declan have had active weeks, and how lovely of Harry he sounds like a great big brother. That photo of Imogen is so cute, she looks very happy x #livingarrows

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment πŸ™‚ We have had a busy fun week and loved it x

    1. I was inspired by Emily (from Emily and Indiana) so I can’t take all the credit for the cake smash idea.

  5. Great idea to do your own cake smash photos. Look like she enjoyed the cake. Lovely that they have such a strong bond. We have never tried a flip out though heard lots of great things about them. Looks like fun!

  6. The cake smash sounds like so much fun. I didn’t notice the backdrop in a different language either. #LivingArrows
