Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. How are we half way through the year already? If you have managed to link up every week of Living Arrows so far – thanks so much! But also thanks to the people who are here for the very first time or those that pop by every now and again – I love seeing so many people link up 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:
There is nothing photographically brilliant about this week’s photos but they sum up parts of our week, and little snippets of the children’s personalities. LP’s photo was taken after her swimming lesson, just before we had dinner. She was in comfy clothes, hair a mess and just so simply happy.
Little Man has had a funny week. I had his school induction evening where we got to know what class he’ll be going to when he starts Reception in September and we got given so much paperwork too. But he has spent the week waking early, being emotional over the smallest of things and being incredibly fussy and clingy too. He wants what he wants and there’s no moving from that. Is this what being four is like? But, he has been giving the best cuddles this week too.
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.
