Living Arrows 2017 – 51/52

You know it’s been another funny old week when you get to Sunday evening and realise you’ve not really taken any photos for Living Arrows that week.

And so, just before the children go to bed you ask one of them to let you snap a quick photo.  And you get this.

Pretty standard for a six year old at bedtime I suppose!

We actually had a pretty busy week last week, as we gear up for the end of term and for Christmas.

Both children had their Christmas concerts at school and they both really did us proud.  I would love to have photos from the concerts to share for this week’s post, but I didn’t manage to get any of just them.  I also made a conscious decision this year to spend more time just watching the concerts, rather than trying to record them.  To be more present and just really enjoy the moment of seeing my children on the stage, giving it their all!

Rhys’ concert was all about Christmas around the world and it was so much fun.

He chose to be an angel, and got to be the centre of attention at one point, pulling numbers out of a box to decide which countries they would visit as part of the play.

Nerys’ class kept things a bit more simple and sang a collection of Christmas songs while their teacher narrated the nativity story.

There were almost 90 children, all aged either three or four and they were amazing.  Not a single child cried, no one had to be taken off stage for cuddles, they all just sang their hearts out.  I think half the mums in the audience were in tears though, what is it about little ones performing Christmas concerts that makes us get so emotional?!

Now we’re in the final countdown, the last week of term before a well-deserved break for Christmas.

The children have worked so hard this term, they are so ready for a bit of time to just relax and have some fun!
