Living Arrows – 28/52 {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.

Also – something new here, I will be trying to resurrect the Living Arrows Instagram account! So, use #LivingArrows on Instagram and follow @LivingArrows_ and then I will share my favourite images each week – I’ll probably try and do one a day but we’ll see how I go! I’ll probably feature the previous week’s images the following week. Anyway, follow and use the hashtag and we’ll see what happens!

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:

Toby Goes Bananas

Adventures in Websterland

Mummy to Dex

This week’s photos aren’t anything amazing and you have probably seen similar ones from me over the last few months. But these ones are special to me because I took them to mark different moments for the children.

Little Man’s photo was taken on his transition day, his very first day of testing out his new Reception class. He is so excited, so happy to be following in his sister’s footsteps and just so keen to wear uniform and have lunch with his friends. It really is the simple things for him and I hope in September he loves school just as much as he does now.

LP’s photo was taken a couple of days later. She was Star of the Week at school and it’s something she has been so excited about each time her friends have earned the achievement through the year – but this week was all about her. We went to a special assembly and spoke about how each of the star children really lived by the school values. The main point of LP’s was that she was always kind to others – and I couldn’t ask for more. I am so proud of her.

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. Transition day is always so exciting. I don’t think our school’s is until next week, when all the children move up for the day alongside the new reception coming in. It helps when they’ve seen older siblings (or in our case cousins), go through the school

  2. Thank you so much for featuring us this week Donna. I’m sure little man will love school he certainly looks excited in the photo. It’s such a big adventure for them isn’t it. Well done to LP what an achievement. I always say that the only things I want for my children is for them to be happy and to always be kind x

  3. Firstly, I love the round up pictures! Secondly, I think Little Man is going to love school if his face is anything to go by and well done to LP. Being kind is such an important characteristic to have so you must be extremely proud of her. Thirdly, I am off to add #livingarrows to my IG list for BattleKid’s photos. Exciting!

  4. Thank you for featuring my picture 🙂 I’m loving the pictures your two in front of brick wall – I wonder how many hundreds of photos you’ll take there before they’re both grown up? You must be very proud of them too – it sounds like they both had a great week.

  5. What lovely smiley photos! And what proud moments for you – that’s fantastic that Little Man is so excited to be starting school and well done LP on her star of the week. Gorgeous children. x

  6. What an exciting week for your two! I really hope that T loves school just as much in September, and well done to A for getting Star of the Week. Anything like that always makes me emotional! What a fantastic achievement! xxx
