Living Arrows – 3/53 {2018}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I loved seeing everyone link up last week – and cannot wait to see the children grow through 2018.

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!

Living Arrows

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

Life at Cooks Cabin

Coffee, Cake, Kids

Meme and Harri

This week’s photos were taken at the weekend. We were away again – locally this time – and the children had a really lovely time in the adventure playground – as well as eating so much, swimming and just relaxing.

This weekend showed me how grown up Little Man has become. It’s the first time he’s done one of these tightrope things by himself and he was so proud at the end of it. Rightly so!

I took a photo of LP at Warwick Castle last year in stocks and so she loved capturing the moment again outside the hotel. She just looks so happy in this photo – and she’s growing up far too quickly.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. 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!

    That photo from Meme & Harri is SO cute!! Little Man is getting so big, I love watching them develop like this but also have to watch through fingers sometimes when they are being really daring! xx

    I remember having a photo on me in the stocks as a child, my Mum still tells me she had thoughts of walking off and seeing how long it took till I could get out, haha.

    You can’t beat a run around at an adventure play ground – I love the look of concentration on your son’s face. Athena is such a mini version of you, especially in this photo!

    I love it when they master something new at the playground – although my heart is in my mouth when Alfie wants to do something daring like go down the biggest slide on his own! Fab photos this week #livingarrows

    They are both growing so quick, I love the look of concentration when they are mastering a new challenge

  20. January 21, 2018 / 10:21 pm

    Lovely pictures – LP is looking so grown up all of a sudden! And well done LM – Toby used to do those rope bridge things but lately he’s got scared of them again.

  21. January 21, 2018 / 11:05 pm

    Oh the look of concentration on his face! Bless him. Hope you had a lovely time away look forward to hearing all about it x
