Living Arrows – 10/52 {2019}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows – and thanks to everyone who linked up last week. I love this project and it’s so nice getting to know the families that participate in Living Arrows each week and this year it looks like a really lovely mix of old and new faces. 

If you haven’t joined in with Living Arrows before it’s is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s 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.

Each week I share two pictures from our week – one of each of our children – but you can share one or more pictures that capture a moment of childhood. The following week I’ll share my three favourite photos from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs. As a little tip, I only really feature landscape photos – and very occasionally square photos.

So if you would like to link up, grab a badge and post around a photo of childhood from the previous week. I look forward to reading your posts and make sure you visit a few of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment too!

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

Just Motherhood

Pondering Parenthood

Mudpie Fridays

This week’s photos were both taken at Chessington World of Adventures yesterday. It was a pretty disastrous day out and one that we ended up abandoning after less than two hours. But, we had a whole bonus afternoon at home to relax and just play which the children seemed to appreciate.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week and seeing the photos you share. If you link up make sure to go and read some of the other posts and I’ll be commenting and sharing them through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part – see you again next week!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. What a shame you had to cut your day short, the weather was wild yesterday so I think you made the right decision. The kids look very happy in your photo’s this week, I hope they enjoyed the couple of hours you did have at Chessington x

  2. It’s always a shame to have to abandon a day out isn’t it. At least you got that bonus time at home, it’s nice just to be home sometimes isn’t it!

    Great photos from last week too!

  3. What a shame you only stayed for a couple of hours – it was so windy though so I don’t blame you! We’re hoping to visit again over the next few weeks to check out the new Room on the Broom ride! #LivingArrows

  4. Such a shame you had to abandon your day out. The same happened to us, we’d planned on meeting people at Yorkshire Wildlife Park but it was raining so hard we didn’t even get out of the car! Thankfully we’ve got annual passes and didn’t lose any money but the people we were meeting had bought tickets for that day so they stuck it out as long as they could x
