Living Arrows – 13/52 {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:

Whimsical Mumblings

This week’s photos were taken on a trip to a local forest on Saturday morning. We’ve learnt to go out early before places get busy and both the children loved a stomp through the forest and then a play in the play area before heading home to relax.

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. We’ve been going to our local woods all through winter, in ice and snow and it’s been so quiet. Half term and hot weather means it’s going to be so busy- I’m dreading it! Think it will be a case of us trying to go really early or very late in the day.

  2. Awww, lovely photos! Forests were some of my favourite places to explore as a child. What am I saying, I still love exploring them now!

    Thank you so much for featuring my photo! xx

  3. They both look like they’re having a great time! We’re so rubbish at getting up and out early – now the boys can get up without us we’re catching up on the years of lost sleep with some much needed lie ins ?
