Living Arrows – 10/53 {2018}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I loved seeing everyone link up last week – and cannot wait to see the children grow through 2018.

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.

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:

Dear Bear and Beany

Something About Baby

Suburban Mum

This week’s photos were taken on one of our snow days last week. Aside from half an hour in the garden, the children were happy to play inside – having screen time, playing with Lego and watching Disney movies. It was so lovely to have a slower pace for a few days.

    It sounds like the children coped really well with not being able to use the garden much on their snow day x

    I think a lot of people had a slower week last week. We didn’t get any snow days but we certainly enjoyed getting cosy in the evenings with movies and games. There’s nothing else for it when the weather is wild. Hope you all have a lovely week x

    I love how interested Little Man looks with whatever he is watching! Tablets are a Godsend during snow days aren’t they!

    Love this! I had all the Mum guilt over the amount of tablet time my two had last week but it didn’t last long. Thank god for tablets!!

    We definitely enjoyed the slow days, little ones school was shut on Wednesday and Friday which was so nice!

    I love having days where you can just stay indoors and ‘relax’ for a while. Sounds like they coped really well!

    We stayed in for most of the time, did manage to get out for a quick play in the snows!

    Little man looks so grown up in his photo! Love LP’s face too, and the fact she’s just hanging out in her princess dress! x

    It sounds like a lovely day! Sometimes we all need to slow down and potter around the house

    Monkey loves his tablet I struggle to get him off it sometimes! Lovely that you got some wind down days. I could do with some of those! Our school stayed open the whole time … sob xx

    LM looks so engrossed 🙂 It’s good they were happy with spending some time inside – I bet you’re glad the snow has gone now though!

    We enjoyed staying in the warm when the snow arrived too. Thank you so much for featuring my photo! x

    Some fab featured photos this week! I love a slower pace of life mid way through term time, as it’s a chance to recharge!

    Gotta love the ol’ tablet. It bothers me when people hate on screen time for kids – my kid has learned so much through YouTube videos. Although I’ll never understand the fascination of watching other kids play with their toys.

    I am still yet to introduce my daughter to a tablet! Plenty of time for that in the future! Lovely photos x #livingarrows
