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 – 22/52

This week has been one spent trying to get back to normal after our holidays, catching up with washing and relaxing. We haven’t done much at all but both Hubby and I have gone back to work and LP and Little Man have had great fun in the garden and playing all day. LP has so many quirks that just make us laugh. This week she found a ball in…

Living Arrows – 21/52

This week has been such a lovely one with most of the week spent at Center Parcs up in Cumbria and then the weekend spent with our lovely friends over at Mental Parentals before driving home yesterday. The week was full to bursting and I don’t remember a time when I have taken more photos than the last seven days. Here are a couple of my favourites. Little Man seemed…


Living Arrows – 20/52

This week has been anything but ordinary with our break at Bluestone National Park Resort. We came home for the weekend to a house covered in dust from building work that’s been happening whilst we were away and so spent most of the weekend in the garden where these photos were taken. LP loves flowers at the moment and picks them constantly when I say she can – dandelions, daisies…


Living Arrows – 19/52

This week’s Living Arrows, like most of mine, are taken over the weekend. This weekend saw Little Man turn two and it couldn’t have been any better really – friends, family, sun and lots of food! It’s only fitting that Little Man’s photo this week was taken on his Birthday – opening his presents in his PJs. LP has spent the majority of this week refusing to be called her…


Living Arrows – 18/52

This week has been such an incredibly busy one with work days, playdates, swimming lessons and trying to sort out the house ready for our building work that starts next week. As such, I haven’t taken many photos at all! But there are a few moments that I managed to capture that fit Living Arrows perfectly. Firstly, LP and her princess shoes. There is nothing quite like a little girl,…


Living Arrows – 17/52

Up until the weekend this week was full of playing outside, enjoying the sun and not doing much else. LP and Little Man both love being outside and would rather be outside than anywhere else – happily going straight outside after breakfast, although on weekdays LP is at preschool so doesn’t get as much time outside as she would like. This week’s photos were both taken at the same time,…


Living Arrows – 16/52

This week was a pretty average week for us – until the weekend! I’ll be writing about our weekend on Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas really soon but I did write about our first impressions here. It was only right really that our Living Arrows photos of the week were from the weekend too. Little Man loved being on the ship and his favourite things was to look out…
