Living Arrows 2020 Week 48/52

Welcome to Living Arrows 2020! This is the third year I have taken part in this linky and I love taking part each week! If you haven't heard of the linky before, This was set up by Donna at What the Redhead Said and the name comes from the poem by Kahlil Gibran "You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth" 

Each week I share one photograph of James and one of Freddie and share what they have been up to during the previous week.

So last week we had Freddie's fifth birthday! He had an absolutely brilliant day! He had a Red Arrows themed cake! Red Arrow themed cookies and to top it off he had a personalised video message from Red Ten - Squadron Leader Adam Collins

James has been loving his virtual Cub sessions and even took part in a virtual camp at the weekend along with mum and Freddie! We watched a movie and James did some zoom crafting!

Freddie you are Five!

How is it your fifth birthday already gorgeous boy!

It really seems like yesterday that James was in reception and we were celebrating your first birthday and now it's you in reception! 

This last year has seen you attempt the soya ladder and pass steps one and two! You then sadly failed at step three twice! 

You are now sharing a bedroom with James, or well you are meant to. You still find your way in to mummy's bed or mummy into yours most nights!

You still love you cow Moo and sleep with it every night! 

You absolutely love going to school and have some lovely little friends. Two of which have siblings in James class. 

It's been a strange year with the Coronavirus lockdown, this gave us so much time together as a family safely locked away in our house. 

During this time you developed a love of the Red Arrows and you like nothing more than watching them on YouTube and telling us you are going to be Red 10! 

Happy birthday our gorgeous Freddie Bear

We love you so much xx

Oops I am over a week later with this post! It was just a typical school week and zoom cubs and zoom beavers for the household while daddy worked from the back bedroom! Mummy had to take a trip to town to get her glasses fixed.

Freddie was also back to school after his two week isolation which included the half term holiday.

The Siblings Project 2020 - November

Welcome to the Siblings Project November 2020 Post.

It's crazy that it is already November and the year that was mostly spent at home in lockdown is almost over although we are currently in a lockdown. 

This months pictures of the boys were taken on Remembrance Sunday. The were taken at  our house with James in Cub uniform and also at our scout hut when we went to see our poppy display.

Living Arrows 2020 Week 45/52

Welcome to Living Arrows 2020! This is the third year I have taken part in this linky and I love taking part each week! If you haven't heard of the linky before, This was set up by Donna at What the Redhead Said and the name comes from the poem by Kahlil Gibran "You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth" 

Each week I share one photograph of James and one of Freddie and share what they have been up to during the previous week.

So this week has been crazy with Freddie being at home and James in school. Andy has been trying to not be on the phone a couple of days when he started at 8am so he could watch Freddie while I dropped James off and similar in the afternoon he's tried to take his break around the time I was leaving to pick James up, just so Freddie wasn't sat on his own!

This was also the week where the second lockdown started and The Scout Association had to stop all face to face meetings again. Luckily we managed to get all the Thursday groups to meet earlier in the week so none of the kids lost out on this week's meetings. James is pretty grumpy about the fact he will not have face to face Cubs for a few weeks. James also received his Chief Scout Bronze Award this week. During the big lockdown earlier in the year, James threw himself into finishing all the badges at Beavers that he had already started as he wanted to get his award. He was one of three members who gained it during the lockdown!

Living Arrows 2020 week 44/52

Welcome to Living Arrows 2020! This is the third year I have taken part in this linky and I love taking part each week! If you haven't heard of the linky before, This was set up by Donna at What the Redhead Said and the name comes from the poem by Kahlil Gibran "You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth" 

Each week I share one photograph of James and one of Freddie and share what they have been up to during the previous week.

So this week was half term. We had planned Monday as a quiet day since James had been hiking over the weekend, however it turned pretty manic as at lunchtime mummy received an email from school about Covid cases and until a text message came later on we had no idea which one of the boys the letter was actually about. It ended up being Freddie so he was then in isolation for the rest of the school holiday.

James was pretty grumpy as with Freddie in isolation and daddy working we could not even go out for a walk. Luckily Freddie has had no signs and has been perfectly fine so he will be back to school next week
