Living Arrows – 25/52 {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:

Battle Mum


One Small Human

This week’s photos were both taken yesterday. We had a bit of an all over the place with Hubby working a night and us having a lot of stuff to do at home – as well as it being the hottest day of the year so far. But, we still managed to take the children to the park to ride their bikes – which wasn’t as idyllic as LP makes it look in this photo… But hey, we got out and we got home again in one piece!

Before we went to the park we had a little photoshoot in the garden for an upcoming collaboration. The children had to put school uniform on – at the weekend – which they thought was hilarious. Especially Little Man as this was the first time he’d worn uniform – ready for starting school in September. I love his cheeky cheese face and how grown up he looks.

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.

    Look at LP go. Riding her bike is Alice’s favourite thing to do at the moment. Love little mans face, it’s the cutest x

    How grown up does Troy look? He is growing so fast! Where does life go?

    It was so hot yesterday wasn’t it, it’s bad enough for us adults but for children it’s worse I think. At least got out and did something, we opted to stay home in front of a fan. I can’t believe it’s that time again to start thinking about school uniform for September ! Your little man looks super adorable and very grown up.

    A picture doesn’t always tell the whole story does it, but she looks happy that’s for sure. And your boy in his school uniform made me melt. We’re in complete and utter denial! xx

    Fab bike your little one has here! And a school uniform in July seems fun too! Is he looking forward to starting school in September? #LivingArrows

    Aww, little man’s face! So lovely. Hope you haven’t melted too much in this weather!

    Thank you for the link up this week! I am loving all of these outdoor pictures!! I can’t believe that he’s starting school in september though. Time goes so quick #LivingArrows

    Lovely photos, I love the grin on his face… that’s just TOO cute! He’s looking very grown up in his uniform. Bike riding looks like fun, it’s perfect weather for it at the moment!

    I love that little fairy door photo. I don’t think it’s as hot here, still nice though. Glad you got to go out and do something. Your little dude looks so cute xx

    Little Man’s face is brilliant. It must be really weird putting uniform on early, let alone when you’ve not started school yet

    School uniform at the weekend? How novelty! Though a few years from now you might have a harder time persuading them to done their uniforms on a weekend.

    Lovely photos again! I always wanted a bike with the dangly bits off the handlebars. So fab.

    Thanks for including my photo this week πŸ™‚

  12. June 19, 2017 / 10:09 pm

    Aww look how grown up he looks! Also I’m sure I’ve had similar park trips. I sometimes think if only photo’s had sound! Eilidh x

    LP’s bike is exactly what I dreamed of as a child! And look at Little Man! He’s so grown up in his school uniform! x

  14. June 21, 2017 / 12:08 pm

    This weather is crazy, isn’t it! I’m not going to complain though! πŸ˜‰ Lovely photos, I love Little Man’s cheeky grin. <3

    Thanks for hosting x

    Thanks so much for featuring us this week Donna. Love the other two pictures too. LP certainly makes it look like it was a nice day out and Little Man’s face is a picture!

  16. June 21, 2017 / 10:06 pm

    How is he old enough already for school uniform? He looks very smart in it though.

  17. June 22, 2017 / 11:10 am

    Ooh I love LPs bike, so pretty! And how grown up does Little Man look in his uniform.. so smart πŸ™‚ xx

  18. June 25, 2017 / 2:55 pm

    Love LP’s bike. I’m sure that’s the kind of bike my daughter has in mind everytime she says she wants a pinky bike. Thank you for hosting x

  19. June 25, 2017 / 10:03 pm

    Oh look at LM’s face in his uniform! We need to start thinking about getting Toby’s soon – he has to wear a shirt and tie though so I’m not sure how that’s going to go down! (And I want LP’s handlebar ribbons)

  20. June 25, 2017 / 11:34 pm

    Oh we have days like that too, the pictures tell a very different story lol. She’s doing really well on her bike. The picture of little man is just the cutest. Bless. #LivingArrows

    I was so emotional when my eldest tried his school uniform on for the first time. It was SO cute!!! Little Man looks gorgeous, and it is going to be such a big change for you in September! A totally new stage of life for you all. The hottest day of the year was sweltering! xx
