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 – 40/52

This week has gone so incredibly quickly. LP started full mornings at preschool last Monday, no more settling in sessions – She is now a fully fledged preschooler! This has seen her become even more tired in the afternoons and even using the buggy board again on the way home a couple of times. Our Little Pickle seems even littler when she’s tired! I also signed LP up for swimming…

Living Arrows – 39/52

This week has zoomed by. With LP’s preschool drop offs and both Hubby and I working different days the whole week seems to merge into one and before I know it Sunday is here and I’m looking for Living Arrows photos. Apart from review pictures I haven’t really taken photos at all this week, we haven’t had many moments that I have thought worthy of taking my big camera out…


Living Arrows – 38/52

This week has been one full of sickness but thankfully we’re nearly all over that now. Despite being poorly we did manage to squeeze in an afternoon at Brighton around mine and Hubby’s work days and LP’s first full week at preschool. LP is loving preschool. She has friends and does so many different things that we don’t really do at home like making sandcastles. Dropping her off in the…


Living Arrows – 37/52

This week has been chock full of LP starting preschool, a visit to Little Street with Amy from 2 Boys 1 Mum and a day out at Langley Park. It’s been a lovely week for doing things and seeing people but unfortunately has finished with all four of us being ill with a virus so we have had sleepless nights with two snotty, overtired children. I’m hoping to see the…


Living Arrows – 36/52

This week has been a busy one – I’ve had three days at work and around that and Hubby’s working hours I have been decorating our bedroom. I used to love decorating before having kids but now, trying to juggle work, childcare and painting I find each decorating job a complete nightmare and I will probably pay someone to do our decorating next time! Around the decorating we had a…


Living Arrows – 35/52

This week has been such a great week. Although I worked for three days, as a family we have managed to cram in so much to the rest of the week and Hubby has had a few days off work too. Thursday was LP’s 3rd Birthday and we spent the day at a local country park, followed by an ice cream treat in a local dessert parlour. We also had…


Living Arrows – 34/52

This week has been busy, busy, busy and for once it has come to a close with me feeling as though we have got the work/life balance completely right. This has been a pretty perfect week. The week started off with Hubby having the kids whilst I had a day at work, then we had a day long play date with LP’s best friend and her Mum before driving to…
