Living Arrows – 24/52

I hope you have all had a lovely week. 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:


Mummy and Monkeys


Baking Betsy


Odd Socks and Lollipops

This week’s photos were taken in the garden. It really is the simple things with LP and Little Man and one of their favourite things is playing on the swings. I love LP’s face in this photo. She is such a character at the moment, so full of personality and just so funny. This photo has captured all of that perfectly.

Little Man had his hair cut last week and looks just so grown up! Every time he has a hair cut he looses that last bit of baby-ness, until it grows again – and he’s my baby all over again! He loves swings like nothing else.

  1. What great photos. That laughing one of LP is brilliant.

    Loving your photo choices too – that swing fairground one is brilliant, think I spotted that one on IG as well.

  2. What awesome photos! Athena looks like she’s having so much fun 🙂 Toby really isn’t convinced that a swing his fun – he likes them but only swinging really slowly!
