Living Arrows – 33/52 {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:

Life at Cooks Cabin

Janine’s Little World

Bright Side

This week’s photos I took in the little gap of time between getting home from holiday and the children going to stay with their grandparents for the weekend. They’re for a brand campaign but they also sum up this stage in our lives quite well. Little Man is off to school in just three short weeks. He looks so grown up and so ready for school – however much I hate to admit it.

LP is now an old sweat when it comes to school. She has two years under her belt and is starting her third year in September. When she got dressed into this uniform she insisted on keeping the tiara on her head, saying how much she loved it and how it would make her uniform even more beautiful. She is such a girly girl but also happy in jeans. She’s so well rounded, so happy and so her. She is just so happy in her own skin and I hope that never changes.
