Living Arrows – 10/52 {2021}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows! I love this project, I’ve been doing it for so many years now and it’s always nice seeing who links up and watching children and families grow throughout the year.

If you haven’t joined in with Living Arrows before it’s is about 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.

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 favourite photo from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blog. As a little tip, I only really feature landscape photos – and very occasionally square photos and I’ll never feature the same blogger’s photos two weeks in a row.

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’s my favourite photo from last week:

Mummy Barrow

This week’s photos were outtakes from some blog review photos we were working on at the weekend. I just love their facial expressions.

These two are back to school today and I’m feeling a whole range of emotions. I really need time alone, time in a silent house and to get dedicated working hours back. LP and Little Man need to socialise, exercise and spend time in a different environment. But, after the year we’ve all had, any change is a daunting prospect. I have everything crossed that we won’t end up in lockdown again later this year.

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. I too hope that we won’t end up in lockdown again. E is at school today whereas J isn’t back until Friday so we are still juggling here which is a little awkward but I’m really going to miss them both so much. Such lovely photos as always Donna – wishing your two well upon their return!


  2. Troy’s face has cracked me up! I love outtakes, we get some really funny faces.
    I think everyone is so ready for back to school but so wary at the same time. I don’t think there will ever be a time in our lives when we have such conflicting emotions at the same time. It’s horrible and very draining.
