Living Arrows – 28/52 {2020}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows! I love this project, I’ve been doing it for so many years now and it’s always nice seeing who links up and watching children and families grow throughout the year.

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 and I’ll never feature the same blogger’s photos two weeks in a row.

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:

Dear Bear and Beany

The Mum Diaries

My Sentimental Jamboree

This week’s photos were just taken at home on Saturday. We had a pretty slow, uneventful day and it was lovely. Although I did go into town for the first time since March and I’m not in a hurry to repeat the experience. It was horrible.

On another note, Little Man doesn’t think he needs a haircut. He had his last haircut the weekend before lockdown and as much as I like his surfer boy / boy band look I can’t cope with him shaking his head constantly to get it out of his eyes.

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!

  1. I’m sorry your experience wasn’t good going out on your own, it’s gotten really ridiculous now and no one seems to care anymore!

    On another note, I love Troys hairstyle, but I too have a fringe and it bugs me so much when it gets too long and I have to do the hair toss thing! Haha

  2. With the lockdown easing, most towns are becoming far busier and it makes me feel somewhat uncomfortable. I too have avoided town like the plague and don’t tend to enjoy going out as I once did. Lovely photos – love your little man’s lockdown surfer-style hair – it suits him!

  3. I just cut Toby and Gabe’s hair last week – when Toby’s gets long he’s always tilting his head back to look out from underneath it 🙂 I’ve only been in our little town which is pretty much back to pre-lockdown busy-ness levels now – so many people just seem to think the whole thing is over now! Hope you have a better experience next time.
