Living Arrows – 2/52 {2019}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows – and thanks to everyone who linked up last week. I love this project and it’s so nice getting to know the families that participate in Living Arrows each week and this year it looks like a really lovely mix of old and new faces. 

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.

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:

This Glorious Life

Adventures in Websterland

Devon Mama

This week’s photo of LP was taken on our way back from our break last weekend. The children had an inset day on Monday so we spent it travelling back – with a stop off at Stowe National Trust to stretch our legs and eat tea and cake.

Little Man’s photo was taken when we went climbing yesterday. LP was the only one of us who had climbed before – at a birthday party – so it was nice for us all to experience it together. We all had a great time.

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!

    I really want to take my children climbing too, it’s something I think they would love to do! I love that climbing wall – looks so much fun!

    The climbing looks like so much fun! I’d love to take the boys but I think they might just get too scared and it would be a waste of money!

    The climbing day with the kids looked like so much fun!!

    Rock climbing is so much fun. My eldest has had a go during soft play. I’ve been telling her to lean in to it. #livingarrows

    Your weeks always look so fun! I wish I could go to new places every week, but I find it so hard when they are so small.

    Kids love climbing, don’t they? We occasionally go to a place in Reading – the boys love it and we really need to take Kara too, as she would love it.

    I always try to make the most of inset day’s trying to travel when we can. It looks like you had a great time away. I didn’t know adults could do climbing too! I’ve only ever seen it at kids parties xx

    Aww, no! I forgot to add my link to the linky this week. What an idiot haha. Loved having a read through everyone else’s post though 🙂

    You must be crossing quite a few National Trust places off your list already? #livingarrows

    My youngest is a similar age to LM and hasn’t been climbing before either. Will have to rectify that. Sounds like you all had fun!
