Living Arrows

Living Arrows is a weekly linky celebrating childhood. The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky. Here are all the posts so far in the series.

Living Arrows – 41/52

To be honest I can’t remember much of last week – it has been overshadowed by the weekend, celebrating my Birthday and just being so, so busy! This weekend, as always on my Birthday, I have realised how we really are in Autumn now. The leaves on the trees wherever we went were beautiful golden shades varying from incredibly light green to the deepest of reds. Many had started to…

Living Arrows – 40/52

This week has flown by – that seems to be a theme now that LP’s started school. The weeks whizz by in a blur of weekdays and weekends, school, work and time together. Life is so busy but it’s pretty perfect too. I’m really enjoying this stage of our lives. A month ago LP hadn’t yet started school. She had no interest in letters, words or holding a pen. Up…


Living Arrows – 39/52

This week has been full of a poorly, moody, exhausted LP. She had last Monday off school but went back on Tuesday although she really wasn’t herself and I am glad that by Friday she was feeling much better. Little Man and I spent most of the week off on play dates and he’s loving all the adventures we’re getting up to. This weekend was mainly about relaxing, going to…


Living Arrows – 38/52

This week has been LP’s first full week at school and she has done so well. Considering she is so little, and still only just four, she has settled in so well and we are all so incredibly proud of her. Apart from school this week has been full of mini adventures with Little Man each day and then yesterday we managed a day out together as a family. We…


Living Arrows – 37/52

This week has been a strange week but still a lovely one. It’s the week where LP started school, the week where our whole future routine changed and the week where life started a whole new chapter. But just before LP started school we had a really lovely day out – at Beale Park where this week’s photos were taken – and the rest of the week was about LP,…


Living Arrows – 36/52

Another week of Living Arrows and once again the lovely Hayley has asked us to be featured contributors and so you can once again link up to Living Arrows at the end of this post. This week’s photos are pretty ordinary moments of our life currently. Little Man has a new found love of our Kindle Fire and plays games on it when we let him. He’ll sit in his…


Living Arrows – 35/52

I am pretty chuffed that Hayley over at Shutterflies, where Living Arrows is hosted, has asked me to be a featured contributor so at the end of this post you’ll find a lovely linky where you can join up your own Living Arrows post. If you haven’t joined in with Living Arrows previously it is one of my favourite linkys and one that I love being a part of. You…
