Living Arrows – 11/52 {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:

Toby Goes Bananas

This week’s photos were taken on a walk over the weekend. I’ve started walking more during the week, after dropping the children at school, and one of my walks took me to a local lake and I was so disgusted by the amount of litter. So we went out as a family at the weekend to litter pick – it was such a nice way to spend the morning.

LP always takes her camera out with her – she’s a total Mini-Me. We’re trying to teach her more about photography as the weeks go by and at the moment she loves taking photos of flowers and wildlife.

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. Litter picking is such a good idea- annoying that it has to be done though. I’ve noticed such an increase in our area, especially as people seem to be getting more takeaway food and drink and just throwing the packaging on the floor- and don’t get me started on the amount of masks I’ve seen!

  2. Aww what a lovely, earth friendly way to spend a morning! Well done to you all! Love that Athena takes her camera out everywhere, that’s so cute! xx

  3. Thanks for sharing my picture this week 🙂 It looks like a lovely place to go for a walk, good for you doing the litter picking – it’s a shame other people can’t do their bit to keep places nice for everyone too!
