Living Arrows – 2/53 {2018}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I loved seeing everyone link up last week. The eagle eyed of you may notice that the title of this post now says 53. No, there aren’t 53 weeks this year but there are 53 Mondays! So we will have 53 Living Arrows posts by the end of the year – thanks Katy for pointing it out!

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.

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:

The Frenchie Mummy

Adventures of a Mum

Very Much So

This week’s photo of Little Man was taken yesterday on our weekend in Brighton. We had donuts and he spent ages trying to lick the sugar from around his mouth. I remember doing the same when I was his age.

LP’s photo was taken on the last day of the holidays before the children went back to school. She loves anything creative and spent the whole morning painting flowers on her pottery set.
