Living Arrows 31/52

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

Kahlil Gibran

This week we haven’t really be out and about much. We dropped my nephew to the airport on Tuesday after having him visit for a week. Apart from that I have to admit we’ve been mostly staying indoors with the air con on, to escape the 30º plus heat we’ve had here in Portugal. I can see why so many of the retirees return to the UK for July and August.

We’ve been chilling as I’ve said, not doing much, and I’ve been doing some research for our forthcoming USA road trip. BattleKid did discover “wind” this week in the form of my fan! I ended up buying him one of his own on Saturday for fear he might break mine!

He also got a surprise in the form of a magnetic blackboard/whiteboard which I’d bought ages ago in the UK and had shipped down with all our stuff. He’s been enjoying a small blackboard his Nanna bought him so I thought it was time to bring it out. However, I discovered it was missing all the magnetic numbers and letters, the main reason I had bought it. Cue me desperately trying to find some on Amazon that would ship to Portugal so we can continue with his learning. They’re hopefully arriving later this week.living arrows

And of course, after our usual afternoon swim, dinner one evening this week was much-loved spag bol and it went down a treat as you can see. Not a very exciting week but I still managed one or two pictures of BattleKid.living arrows

  1. He looks like he really loves that fan 🙂 I’ve been on two American road trips (although not with kids) – it was the best fun, I’m sure you’ll have an amazing time! #LivingArrows
