Living Arrows – 23/52 {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 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


Life at Cooks Cabin

This week’s photos were taking whilst we were away at Butlins in Bognor Regis last week. Little Man loved spending time on the beach and just kept throwing stones into the sea – such simple entertainment for a four year old. But then he just stood and chatted on his ‘stone phone’ for a few minutes before starting to throw stones in again.

During our holiday LP had a fairy princess makeover. She got her nails done, hair done, face paint and a new costume. She ended up keeping the braids in her hair for two days and not taking the costume off until bedtime – she loved it so much!

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.

  4. Looks like the little ones had a fab time at Butlins!

    There’s nothing quite as much fun as throwing stones into water. And it remains therapeutic for me even now. Our son loves doing this at our local reservoir.
