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 – 1/52

Another year and I’m starting afresh with Living Arrows. I loved joining in last year and found it a great way to see how much the children had grown as the time went on and to document our week too. Children grow so quickly that it’s lovely to be able to record little aspects of childhood each and every week. This week has been a lazy one. We’ve been in…

Living Arrows – 52/52

Our last Living Arrows of the year. I have loved each Sunday night, looking through the photos of the week and picking ones to share in this post. It has been a great way to see how the children have grown month on month and to document the weeks as they have gone by. This week’s pictures were taken at Christmas, obviously, as that is about the only day my…


Living Arrows – 51/52

This week has been a busy one and I have taken so many photos but most I have shared already. We spent Monday at a local pantomime, our first as a family and a new tradition – a Christmas pantomime is now something we will enjoy each year. On Tuesday we went to visit Father Christmas and LP enjoyed telling Santa what she’d like for Christmas – Donald and Daisy…


Living Arrows – 50/52

This week has been a busy one! Although I only worked two days this week, a total of 12 hours, and so felt like I had a lot of time with my favourite people over the course of the week – I now have another two day week coming up and then off for Christmas so am a little spoilt with the family time – I could definitely get used…


Living Arrows – 49/52

This week has been a busy one with work, play dates with friends and generally just catching up with everything. This week has been the week where LP has understood blogging – she has always stood behind me when I’ve been taking product photos and recently learnt her ‘cheese’ face but now we have a stage further – I try to take a photo of LP and she picks up…


Living Arrows – 48/52

This week has been a blur of work mostly as I had to work 4 days instead of three as I couldn’t fit my third day in last week due to Hubby’s shifts so I was playing catch up this week. But we had Thursday as a relaxing day of getting things done and then on Friday we had a day with friends, a morning with friends on Sunday and…


Living Arrows – 47/52

This is one of those weeks. Those weeks where you hardly see you camera, let alone pick it up. I had most of the week off work but as Hubby was working lates and nights it felt like I was by myself with the kids quite a lot being busy with preschool, play dates and running errands. We haven’t had a family day out this week although we did get…
