Living Arrows – 31/52 {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:

Pondering Parenthood

As you probably know we’re on holiday at the moment so this week’s photos were taken during the first few days of our break. Little Man has overcome all fear of the water and is happier than anything jumping into the pool, splashing around and even swimming in the big pool with his float jacket on. He’s come so far in the last year and his progress in the water is so lovely to see.

LP loves the beach and was happy sitting for hours just playing in the sand, digging holes and looking for special stones or shells. The beach is pretty lovely here and we’re taking the children out kayaking in the next couple of days too.

Because we’re on holiday at the moment I won’t be around to comment/share on your posts but normal service will resume when we’re back. Because of this, if you could comment on one or two more this week I’m sure it would be MUCH appreciated by everyone.

    It sounds like you are all having an amazing time on holiday. Well done to your little man for overcoming his fears, my little boy was the same at first but now he loves it and you can’t get him out. LP looks very happy on the beach, children do love finding shells and pebbles it’s just the taking a million home with you that’s the problem. I hope you have a wonderful second week on holiday x

    It looks like you’re having an amazing holiday Donna! There’s nothing better than the pool and the beach when you’re little – I have so many happy memories of both from our family holidays. Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

    I am soooo jealous of your holiday – it looks amazing! Toby is starting swimming lessons next week and I’m hoping he doesn’t have a meltdown at having to go in the pool without me! It looks like LM is definitely making the most of the pool 🙂
