Living Arrows – 22/52

Here we are with another week of Living Arrows! If you haven’t joined in before, Living Arrows 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!

Living Arrows

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week.


Squished Blueberries


Confessions of a Slummy Mummy


Little Fish

This week’s photos were both taken yesterday on a trip up to London. The children don’t go on train often and they both loved looking out the windows. LP especially was engrossed in reading signs on the station platform and playing I-Spy using things she saw zoom past.

Little Man loved our London adventure and we managed the day without the pushchair but, as expected, he needed to be carried and cuddled quite a bit on the journey home. I love this photo of Little Man being cheeky and playing with Hubby’s face whilst he was trying to work out what train we should be getting home.

    I remember taking Alice on a her first train journey, we did a small trip just for her to experience and she had he biggest grin the whole time. I love how something so every day to us gives them such joy. I adore that picture of Little Man. Have a lovely week in IOW x

    Gorgeous shots from everyone. We have ditched the buggy too, Baby won’t consider it anymore. Thanks for hosting huni x

  3. Ah these are such lovely photos! Lily used to love getting the train in to London when we were down South and if I went without the buggy, we’d have lots of cuddles on the way home as well.

    Thank you for hosting and I love the shots from last week as well

    Donna, your two look so grown up in these photos! They’re fab. I took my son on the train to Bristol a while ago and he was so excited! x #LivingArrows

    N loves the train as well, because it’s such a treat. LP looks really grown up with her hair in a bun and from the back. Lovely photos.

    Thanks for hosting

    That picture of LP makes her look so grown up some how. And well done to LM for managing a day out without the buggy – Toby is getting more and more reluctant to get in ours now, but sometimes he still really needs it!
