Living Arrows – 15/52 {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 itโ€™s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, โ€œYou are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forthโ€ 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:

Sophie and Lily

Battle Mum

Hot Pink Wellingtons

This week’s photos were taken at Warwick Castle last Monday. We had such a nice day and I love LP’s photo – not because of the stocks or that it says Drunkard under her – when she’s clearly anything but. No, I love the photo because she looks so genuinely content in that moment and looks her age too. One happy, relaxed, five year old.

Little Man’s photo just shows his character, how happy he is, his love of random clothes and his hair before he had it cut on Friday. He’s such a happy little thing and I just love being around him – a day out with him is always a good one.

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.
