Living Arrows – 18/52 {2017}

It’s that time again – another week of Living Arrows! Thank you so much to everyone that links up – whether once in a blue moon, every week or just some of the time – it’s lovely to have you all here no matter how often you join in.

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:

Mummy to Dex

Glimmer of Hope

Meme and Harri

This week’s photos were taken at the weekend. We have had such a busy time recently when it comes to weekends with holidays, weekends away and just so many plans. But, this weekend, although we had plans they weren’t anything major and allowed us to relax for the whole of Saturday morning – bliss. In the afternoon we went to a National Trust property and the children loved exploring – especially Little Man hiding in this tree.

LP insisted on wearing her cat ears all day and this was her looking through as small a gap as possible between her fingers. It was her way of passing time until our lunch arrived!

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. I just love a Bank Holiday! and all the Easter holidays we’ve been having! National Trust is always such a solid option for a brilliant day out…and they usually have ice cream too, which is always a plus! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  2. I love that picture of LP looking through the tiny gap – that’s just the sort of thing Toby would do! We really should join the National Trust, you always seem to have such fabulous adventures ๐Ÿ™‚
