Living Arrows – 13/52 {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!

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

Dear Bear and Beany

Adventures in Websterland

My Everything Beautiful

This week’s photos were taken in the garden yesterday. This little guy loves nothing more than balloons. He has literally hours of fun with them – even if they’re not blown up!

We had to cancel our Mothers Day plans because LP wasn’t very well. So instead we played in the garden, had a PJ day and just spent time together. It was lovely even if not exactly the Mothers Day we’d planned.

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!

    Oh no! I hope LP is feeling better now. Pleased to hear that you were still able to enjoy Mother’s Day x

    Thank you for featuring my photo this week. I hope LP is feeling better today after a relaxing day at home. I often find deflated balloons in the kids rooms, they love filling them with air and then letting them go to hear the funny noise x

    Sounds like you still had a nice day regardless. Hope LP is ok now x

    My Mother’s Day seems rather similar to yours. Poor E wasn’t well so we spent the majority of the day cuddled on the couch. Hope LP feels better asap xxx

    Sorry to hear LP wasn’t well – sounds like a perfect Mother’s Day to me though at home even if it wasn’t quite what you’d planned. Hope LP feels better soon x

    Thank you for featuring our photo Donna!

    So sorry to hear about LP and I like that you managed to enjoy Mother’s Day and focus on the good and positive things, instead of being sad that your plan didn’t work out.

    That’s a shame you plans had to change. I hope she is better now and you get to have an extra treat soon#livingarrows

    Ah balloons are a joy in this house too and I can’t believe how long some last. Hope your daughter is much better now #LivingArrows

    Poor thing I hope she’s feeling better. There is so much going around at the moment. Xx

    It sounds like you had a lovely day even if it wasn’t the day you’d planned. LP is looking so grown up these days!
