Living Arrows – 12/52 {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!

This Glorious Life

This week’s photos were taken yesterday in the garden at home. We were meant to be away this weekend but we weren’t very well so stayed at home instead. LP asked to put the beach tent up and spent most of her time reading in it.

Little Man’s favourite thing was to help me with the gardening. In his pyjamas and wellies, obviously. He loved pulling weeds out for me.

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!

  2. The weather was perfect for spending in the garden this weekend wasn’t it. LP had a great idea with that tent, I might pop mine up and read in there myself this summer ! Have a nice week x

  3. Sorry to read that your family have been unwell. The bugs are certainly doing the round! Hope they are both better. Getting fresh air in the garden sounds a great idea.
