Living Arrows – 31/52 {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 its 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 photos 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:

Just Motherhood

This week’s photos were taken yesterday on our first trip out with the kids on their new bikes since they learnt to cycle. They needs loads of practice still but it’s so lovely to see them doing something new and a real life skill.

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!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. Aw thank you so much for featuring my photo Donna. It was one of my favourite photos I took of our day at the beach. It looks like the children had a really lovely time on their bikes. xxx

  2. Love the colour of Troy’s bike! I really should dig my bike out storage, I could do with the exercise and would give Iris a little bit of encouragement to use hers outside more often (she’s a pro at riding it round the house! ?)

  3. They look very happy with their new bikes – I really need to get my two riding again after their couple of weeks at bikeability they’ve barely been on them!
