Living Arrows – 30/52

I hope you have all had a lovely week. Here we are with another week of Living Arrows! If you haven’t joined in before, Living Arrows 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:


Baking Betsy


Mummy and Monkeys


My Little Wildlings

Little Man’s photo this week was taken on a moment of downtime, when he’d put his tablet aside to read a new book. He is looking more and more grown up as the weeks go by and I am hanging on to every baby-like characteristic until he starts preschool in September. I know after that there won’t be much ‘baby’ left.


There was only one photo I could share of LP this week, and a slight cheat as it’s already been on the blog a few days ago. But this was LP on her last day of Reception. I can’t believe we are here already – our first summer holidays since LP started school and I want it to last forever!


I’m looking forward to reading all your posts this week. Thanks for reading and taking the time to link up! Next week Living Arrows will be hosted by Toby Goes Bananas as I’ll we’ll be off on our holidays – thanks Sarah!

    Oh they’re such big steps – babies growing up – I’m having a lot of those moments too lately. Can we just freeze time for a little bit? x x

    Aw Little Man with his book. Not so little anymore! It’s amazing how fast this reception year has gone. Can’t believe they’ll be Year 1 next year.

    Thanks so much for featuring my photo 🙂 Little man is looking more grown up but definitely still cute, even now Finlay or Kyle will say or do something and I will realise how little they are really. Its amazing how fast that first year at School goes and I forgot to take one of Finlay, oops!

    Oh how proud does LP look in her school dress! And I know what you mean about growing up – I don’t think there’s anything baby left about Toby now.
