Living Arrows – 3/52 {2021}

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 favourite photo from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blog. As a little tip, I only really feature landscape photos – and very occasionally square photos and I’ll never feature the same blogger’s photo 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’s my favourite photo from last week:

This week’s photos were taken at the weekend which will probably start to turn into a theme. With homeschooling at the moment I don’t have the energy to take photos during the week and by the time we’re done with schoolwork the daylight has gone – and I much prefer taking photos in natural light.

So I took photos yesterday whilst the children were doing a ‘paint your own Lego figures’ kit we were sent. They loved it and still have a couple of little figures each left to paint once their schoolwork is done tomorrow.

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!

  1. Love the idea of painting your own Lego and they look totally into it. Very much with you right now – I am either taking photos of school work which is pretty boring, or when we actually manage to get outside!!! Thanks for hosting 🙂

  2. Such a cool idea – I’ve never seen ‘paint your own Lego’ figures but I think they may have to be added to our gift ideas list! Such awesome photos too 🙂

  3. Those paint your own Lego figures look ace! I hope your week has been OK – I know how you feel about taking photos during the week, I’m the exactly the same!
