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.

This week was a busy week, A day at work for me, A haircut for Little Man, A family trip to see Peppa Pig and then a weekend at BritMums Live. Hubby had a weekend with the children, He loved his time with them and they loved their time with him. A few days of time at the park, Going on the swings together and enjoying the sun. Afternoons of…

Living Arrows – 24/52

Another week, another Living Arrows. This has been a really lovely week. LP, Little Man and I have been off adventuring, Off in our new car to the beach and to a forest too! Meeting Twitter chums and enjoying the sun. Little Man has learnt to say ‘hat’, must wear his hat during all waking hours, and is even happy to improvise when needed. Little Pickle has loved the new experiences…

Our Living Arrows this week are holiday ones, having just returned from a weekend away in the New Forest.

He spent a lot of our holiday adventuring, Laughing when we found him, And pointing out everything that he saw. Little Pickle…

This week’s living arrows are garden ones, We’ve spent as much time as possible in the garden this week, In between showers and ominous black clouds, Little Man has learnt to stand by himself, and has got his first pair of shoes too! Our Little Pickle is always happy in the garden, She doesn’t need entertaining or ‘activities’ as such, But I cracked out the pavement chalk this week, and…

This week has all been about the garden, Playing in the garden, eating in the garden, loving the garden. We have spent as much time in the garden as possible Gardening, pottering and just enjoying the weather. LP has found a new love during the garden times – Rocket Ice Lollies, a love of mine from childhood. LP calls them ‘Nee-Oww-Copter lollies’, her word for Helicopter and makes the rocket…


Living Arrows – 19/52

This week’s Living Arrows is all about Little Man’s Birthday. Little Man turned one on Saturday, We had a party for him with cake – and presents. His Grandparents bought him a racing car ball pool, LP has lived in it since, refusing to get out. Ball pools are a thing of childhood, something that I thought LP would be too big for. How wrong could I be? LP loves…
