Finally feeling back on form (and becoming a whirlwind of energy in the house!) this one and I went out for a walk on Thursday evening. It was one of those typically beautiful autumnal days, with crisp skies, warm sun and vivid colours
You know when you have one of those weeks where you just don’t take any photos? This was one of them – J hasn’t been on her usual top form, has been losing her voice on and off through the week and we haven’t taken her out and about for fear she’ll end up worse off
We went to pick your own this weekend for some sweetcorn and this one saw pumpkins and exclaimed (excitedly) it was Halloween soon. I genuinely think if she could have gone home with 5 pumpkins and nothing else she would have!
This week’s Living Arrows post could only be about J and her week of starting school. 2 days in and she is brimming with excitement and my goodness that girl already has a zest for learning. All weekend she has made us do her phonics and count to and from 20
We spent Friday night going through it all and she keeps running to and from the hall with her book bag, although she was still a little upset that she didn’t actually get a book for her book bag – hopefully this week. There’s not much that makes me prouder than this girl, and I’m so relieved the first few days went without a hitch.
And this time next week I will be mum to a school girl. She is so excited about it, and whilst I am too, I’m understandably apprehensive too
This weekend J and the hubster decided to test a new tent which we had been given by someone at work. It came with no instructions so hubby and I made a pact to try and put it up as best we could without arguing. It worked and some 45 minutes later we had a mammoth 6 person tent built and ready to go, with no arguments and a happy child ready for her weekend of adventure ahead
I’ve been a bit quiet here recently but I have a good excuse! After spending 2 weeks in Florida we spent a few days recovering and washing before then heading straight off to a very wet and muddy Camp Bestival. Despite a few hiccups (tent collapsing on the first night to name one) we had a brilliant weekend
We are into our second week of our holiday in Florida and it has been amazing. We’ve had the perfect blend of days at the park, pool fun and water park days, with the odd character meal thrown in
On Saturday we started the day with a princess breakfast at Epcot, J was so excited and kept wanting them to come over to have her photo taken with them and a cuddle as we are a lovely breakfast and learned a bit about Norway from our host
We then met up with my family at Magic Kingdom and the big event that had been planned by my mum and dad – a visit to Bibbidy Bobbity Boutique for a princess experience
We weren’t sure how it would go as she was a little tired but she enjoyed every second of her transformation and princess treatment from her fairy godmother in training and enjoyed every second. I could talk for ages about the day and how it will be etched in my mind forever, but that’s for another post. Today it’s about my little Belle for the day
We are currently on a family holiday in Florida, it’s J’s second visit and my sixth. We love everything about Disney and on our first day we visited Magic Kingdom (you can’t not!) and straight away J and I spotted Chip n Dale. She knows they’re my favourite and we ran over to them squealing with excitement
This time round she’s much more understanding, it’s familiar this time around and she is buzzing. I love that this opportunity has been given to her and that she’s excited every day.
These two melt me. Whenever we are out they’re as thick as thieves (unless Lexi is rolling in something she shouldn’t or eating something she shouldn’t), and whenever you ask J what she wants to do its ‘take Lexi for a walk’
