Living Arrows – 17/52 {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:

Hannah and the Twiglets

The Mum Diaries


This week’s photos were taken in the garden over the course of the weekend. The weather here has been fantastic – so hot from early in the day. We’ve spent so much time outside, playing in the shade, using the pool and making the most of the new water slide that the grandparents got the children.

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. Thank you for featuring me 🙂 I love that photo of Troy – looks like your two have had so much fun in the garden. Not looking forward to the rubbish weather forecast for this week! 🙁

  2. That picture of Troy is ace! It’s been warm here but not really warm enough for the paddling pool – well not for my two anyway!

  3. So crazy that it already feels like summertime. What wonderful shots of the kids enjoying their time outside. It’s been lovely and warm here too for the most part, just a few windy, rainy days here and there. As I’ve said before, thank goodness for the great weather to get us through this bizarre time.
