Living Arrows 2/52

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




Nate got a marble run from his Grandpa Crispy for Christmas and although a little fiddly to put together, it has caused much excitement in the house the past couple of days.  I’ve wanted one for him for a while because I knew it would be right up his street and when Grandpa surprised him with it, he didn’t know what to expect from looking at the box.  The built run resulted in squeals of surprise and “oooohs” and also quite a few “where’d the marble go” moments.




Ollie was extremely lucky to receive his first guitar this Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa Harry.  The delight on his face when he opened it and realised what it was is hard to put into words.  I wondered if he would keep practicing as we encouraged he should… and promised him that if he could keep practicing himself, we would find him a guitar tutor.  The search is on because he has so far kept his end of the deal and has looked over his beginner guitar book and had a go at the chords, every single day since Christmas!

    Aw my daughter received a guitar for Christmas as well and she was absolutely thrilled with it! We want to get her lessons but we are struggling to find a tutor for her who will do it for someone so young, as she is only 5. x
