Living Arrows – 16/52 {2020}

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 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 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 are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

Dear Bear and Beany

Mudpie Fridays

My Sentimental Jamboree

This week’s photos were taken yesterday in the garden. Honestly, there won’t be much variety here at the moment as the children and I haven’t left the house in over 4 weeks now.

LP’s photo probably just looks like a girl with a water pistol. But no, LP spent the whole of yesterday climbing mountains. The string is her safety rope and she was up and down their play equipment with the rope around her waist, her bag of supplies on her back and her water pistol for ‘Justin’. – Anyone else say ‘for Justin’ when they mean for just in case? She told us she’s been up the Andes, the Rockies, Everest and finally closer to home with Snowdon. Her imagination really is something else.

Little Man is happiest when he’s building and he loves that we have a rug in the garden that he can sit and build on, another way of doing indoor activities outside. He builds Lego, we take it apart and then he happily builds it again. I cannot believe he’s seven in less than a month.

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!
