Living Arrows – 32/52 {2020}

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 three favourite photos from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs. 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 are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

This Glorious Life

This week’s photos were taken over the weekend at home. LP has had her face stuck in a dot to dot book for days now. It has huge dot to dots and she’s obsessed with them!

Little Man still loves our sand and water table. It’s such a young thing, and I often feel the children are a bit too old for it, but then I realise you’re never really too old to play in the sand!

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. Thank you for sharing my picture this week 🙂 We’ve got a little toddler water table too and I keep thinking I’ll get rid of it but then the boys still want to play with it so I guess we’ll keep it for a while longer!

  2. We too have filled up the sandpit this week and low and behold it’s still just a popular as ever! Such lovely pictures Donna, your kids look so happy and relaxed.

  3. I must be a big kid then because I love the sand pit and would happily sit in the sun doing a dot-to-dot! My favourite part of going on holiday was purchasing a Quizkids book- I wonder if they still do them?
