Living Arrows – 26/52 {2019}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows – and thanks to everyone who linked up last week. I love this project and it’s so nice getting to know the families that participate in Living Arrows each week and this year it looks like a really lovely mix of old and new faces. 

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. As a little tip, I only really feature landscape photos – and very occasionally square photos.

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:

This week’s photos were taken yesterday afternoon in the garden. We had a really busy weekend – going to Legoland and staying overnight at a hotel, so it was lovely to relax when we got back. LP was reading – her favourite thing.

Little Man is loving helping in the garden at the moment. He’s been planting and watering all our plants and loves harvesting the fruit of his work. He loves peas straight from the plant and it’s always a reward to to have his very own pea pod after helping in the garden.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week and seeing the photos you share. If you link up make sure to go and read some of the other posts and I’ll be commenting and sharing them through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part – see you again next week!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

    I love LPs seat. And I’m with LM – peas out of the pod are the best!

    Chilling out in the garden is one of my favourite things to do. I’m also thinking about turning part of the garden into a vegetable patch, after seeing your peas and strawberries! x

    J & E love collecting pea pods from their Nana and Grandads farm – they also love eating them which is a plus!

    Isla has developed an aversion to anything green recently… However fresh peas from the garden is one thing she will eat by the bucket load!

    Thanks for choosing my photo – that’s lovely to see!

    I can’t wait until we have a garden. I bet it’s so much fun for little ones to grow their own produce.

    We were in a theme park type place on Saturday too. A chilled Sunday sounds perfect – I love that LP has her head in a book. Thank you so much for featuring my photo from last week x

    Those peas look so fresh and delicious! I was so much like LP when I was younger, always head my head in a book and it looks like Iris is going to be the same. I love to see a child with a book x
