Living Arrows – 11/52

Welcome back to Living Arrows! If you haven’t joined in before, Living Arrows 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!

Very Much So

This week for us, well me, has been one of sickness. I haven’t been up to much at all but the children on the other hand have been full of energy and have loved the sun coming out and us getting back into the garden again.

LP got a bike for her last Birthday and didn’t get to use it much before the winter was in full swing so she has been loving riding in circles around the patio.

Little Man has a new found love of space hoppers and his coordination and energy makes me realise how big he has become. There really isn’t much baby about him anymore.

I look forward to reading all your posts and seeing all your photos of childhood. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week.

    Ah look how happy LP is on her bike, children just love bikes! Alice has a balance bike and keeps asking us to buy her some pedals 🙂 Maybe time for the next stage of bike!! You can’t beat a space hooper, Alice loves her too. x

    What lovely photos, it’s been so nice to get out now that the weather is a bit nicer. Looks like they were having lots of fun.

    Hooray for sunshine and chucking the kids out in the garden! Lovely pictures, they both look like they are having a lot of fun xx

    Lovely photos. Libby also adores space hoppers. The problem is, Lia likes to get in on the action and she is too little to do it. Bouncing her around on the space hopper is not a recommended exercise for anyone with a bad back!x

    How much difference does a bit of sun make? Seriously! It is making me so happy! and I love the picture of LP on her bike. So sorry you’ve not been feeling well though. Kids and illness do not mix well. So hope you are better very soon xxxx

    Hope you’re feeling better now. It must be the season for it – I’m full of cold at the moment and have nearly lost my voice.

    N’s been out on his bike too. So nice to get them outside again. Love the space hopper. N has one but he’s not that fussed about jumping on it. Mostly it gets thrown around!

    I’m sorry to hear that you’re still feeling poorly, hopefully this warmer weather will get rid of all the horrible bugs that are around.
    I love the space hopper picture, you really do need good co-ordination to get around on one of those!

    What a fantastic bike! I think it ticks every box if I were to describe my perfect bike- no wonder she looks so happy- wonderful photos- because who doesn’t love a space hopper 🙂
    I hope this week sees you all in full health.

    I hope you’re feeling better now. Your daughter looks so happy on her bike! I can’t wait until our garden is child safe so the girls can play outside with their bikes! Have a lovely weekend x

    I hope you’re feeling better now – a bit of sunshine usually helps at least. I love LP’s bike – especially the tassles on the handlebars!
