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 itโ€™s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, โ€œYou are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forthโ€ 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 Dave 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.

  1. 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.

  9. 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)

  10. 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
