Living Arrows – 29/52 {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:

Emily and Indiana

Very Much So

Somewhere After the Rainbow

This week’s photos were taken over the weekend. I posted on my Facebook page a few days ago about how tired the children are – how emotional and not their usual energy-filled, happy selves. So this weekend I decided we would spend as much of it as possible in our pyjamas, relaxing and resting as much as possible.

In the end we ate pancakes, played with some new toys from Little Man’s Birthday and then the children snuggled on the sofa and had a Wallace and Gromit marathon – watching all five of the movies in a row! It was just what the children needed – even if I was doing housework whilst they relaxed.

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. Your weekend sounds pretty much the same as ours. The kids had a much needed day at home, relaxing and watching films. Hope LP & little man perk up for the summer holidays x

  2. I never really thought N was impacted, but even he had a 2 hour nap on Sunday (not helped by him struggling to go to sleep most of the week and having a bit of a cold)

  3. I LOVE weekends filled with pj’s and movies! Often they are just what the doctor would order to get back to normal. Thanks for being such a wonderful host for Living Arrows and for always commenting week after week! You’re a star!

  4. We still haven’t had a day like this since Indie finished preschool, so I’ve got this planned for tomorrow! Indie is very excited haha. Thank you for featuring my photo 🙂 xx

  5. They both look very chilled! I think we all need a day at home in front of the TV every now and again don’t we? Toby seems very tired and emotional at the moment too, even though nothing has really changed for him!

  6. We’ve had an emotional end to the term here too, and Win’s behaviour has been a little trying. I can’t wait to relax over the summer and take things easy. Watching films is so good for relaxation. We always watch one on a Friday night and I love it! #LivingArrows
