Living Arrows – 19/52 {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!

This week’s photo of LP is a review photo but I love it so much I just had to use it. She acted like her ice cream was real – as excited as she had been when handed ice creams on holiday. She was just so happy – and we’d just got in from her swimming lesson too so she was exhausted but happy.

On Saturday we enjoyed one of life’s simple pleasures – making daisy chains. Little Man was happy to pick daisies and watch but it was so nice to just be at the park for a while, sitting on the grass.

  2. LP looks very happy with her imaginary ice-cream, my two love playing with the box of ‘fake’ food we have especially the cakes. I love how children take pleasure in the small things like making daisy chains, just goes to show you don’t need tons of toys to keep them happy.

  3. Beautiful photos, both of them!

    Daisy picking – brings back memories! Loved sitting out playing daisy chains. Attempted to show my 2 year old how to do it the other day and he just said, “No Mummy. Boring.”

    That’s me told, then!

  4. I love the pictures you’ve chosen to highlight and feature. LP certainly looks happy with her ice-cream and we’re big fans of daisies in our house. BattleKid always insists on picking them!

  5. Aww LP looks so happy. I love making daisy chains and was making some with A the other day. It is so much fun and it’s the simple things xx

  7. Thank you for featuring my picture lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ I love how happy LP looks with her play ice cream. And Toby loves picking daisies at the moment too – so sweet.

  8. Mint choc chip is my all time favourite ice cream. That photo has got me craving some! and I don’t think there is anything more therapeutic than sitting in the sun making daisy chains. It is such a nostalgic activity, and even better when eating ice cream I reckon! xx
