Living Arrows – 13/52 {2017}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I am loving how many people have decided to make Living Arrows a part of their blogging routine for 2017, it is so lovely to have you all here. It’s definitely one of my favourite parts of each week!

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.

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:

The Frenchie Mummy

Devon Mama

Hannah Spannah

This week’s photos were just taken at home on Saturday. We did some crafting and Little Man got involved for the first time – he loved his little Easter chick,.

LP has been sent a new doll to review and I love she chose one ‘with orange hair that looks just like me’. She’s pretty chuffed with the doll and it has been pretty much attached to her all weekend. I’m using this photo purely because she looks natural in it – no forced smiles or expressions, just a little girl and her doll.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. If I thought a lot of people joined in for the first week then I was amazed at the amount that joined last week! I’m going to keep commenting on all of the posts that link up and sharing my favourite photos each week. Thanks so much for taking part and for adding to this great little community we’re creating – make sure to go and comment on a few other posts at some point during the week too.

  1. That chick looks really good and it’s so sweet of her to choose a doll that matches her. I managed to comment last night on last week’s posts but hope to be better this week 😉 x

  2. Your little man looks very proud of his Easter chick, I can’t believe how close Easter is ! LP looks very happy with her new dolly, I love dolls and soft toys that are a little different from the normal plastic generic ones.

  3. Your children are too cute. Love the Easter chick, crafty times are the best! The doll is cute, I love that she chose one to look like her <3
