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

My sweet boy turned eight last week which was the cause of much excitement. He’s wanted to be eight for ages, it’s his favourite number and official big kid territory. He has one more year at lower school and I’m almost a little heartbroken at how quickly it’s gone, not that I’d ever admit that to him, of course. Comments like that are usually greeted with eyerolls and an exasperated “Mum…”. I can’t actually remember when he stopped saying Mummy. It’s like this big kid just appeared while I wasn’t looking.
I love their birthdays and making the day special for them. We were away for his birthday this year so it was a bit different than the usual traditions but he loved it. He wanted a donut cake for breakfast and we all spent the afternoon at Brixham Harbour, crabbing, a fish & chip supper, exploring the pirate ship and playing in the arcade (3 keyrings won on the 2p machine. Only cost about £7 in coppers..)
I’m really pleased that there are a couple of new names joining the list of featured contributors for September and I’ll be grilling them for their best photography tips and tricks over the next couple of weeks. If you’d like to see more from them, just click on the photos above to visit their blogs and if you’d like to join in with the project, just add your link below (you can find a badge for your blog post HERE ) or you can join in on Instagram, #LivingArrows.
