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.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. Sorry for being absent the last few weeks but I am most definitely back this week and normal service will resume – I’ll be commenting and sharing like I usually do. Thanks as always for linking up!

    I can’t believe that LP is going into year 2 already, such a big girl. I think a tiara is perfect and I know Alice would agree! Sorry Donna he does look really grown up 🙂 x

    It’s scary how quickly school comes around isn’t it?! #LivingArrows

    LP & Little Man look very smart and happy in their new uniforms. I can’t believe there is only 3 weeks left of the summer holidays, time is flying so quickly x

    They both look gorgeous to attend school and it’s soon! She should def go with the tiara at school!

    Don’t they look so much more grown up in uniform? Love the inclusion of the tiara from LP – a girl after my own heart!

    Aww they look so smart! I’m dreading the day my little one starts school, once they get in their uniform it really is a poignant reminder that they are no longer babies!

    Ah, your kiddos are looking a lot older, it’s funny how school uniform does that, isn’t it? Little Man looks SO ready for school!

    I love how happy LP is in her own skin – I’m 29 and I’ve only just started achieving this now!

    They look so grown up in their uniform! The Instagram account sounds awesome. I post mine on Insta so you could just use the repost app to share it 😉 haha! Off to follow it now 🙂

    These summer holidays have simply flown by! They look so happy in their uniform, hopefully your girly will help ease your son into his first year x

    Well I am super happy right now that you features one of my photos. HAHA The little things.
    Oh I am dreading the end of this month when my eldest will also be attending school. At least you have been there once already. I am so confused with all the uniforms.

  12. August 14, 2017 / 12:56 pm

    He certainly doesn’t appear to be daunted by the fact he is starting school soon! In fact he looks ready!

  13. August 14, 2017 / 2:09 pm

    Oh my goodness, there’s something about a school uniform that makes them instantly age about 2 years! They both look so happy in their uniform, I hope they have a great start to the school year.

    Gorgeous pictures. My Harri starts in September and when we went to buy her school shoes she just looked so grown up!! #livingarrows

    They grow so fast once they start school I think. My little one is starting this week. They look so grown up and happy. I hope they both have a great start to the new school year xx

    How cool would it be if tiaras were a part of school uniform?! I’ve just linked up my first blog post in 11 months (and under a new blog title). Living Arrows seemed like a good way to try to get back to blogging!

  17. August 14, 2017 / 9:03 pm

    How grown up do they look, especially LP! Can’t believe they’re going into year 2

  18. August 15, 2017 / 7:12 pm

    Back to school already! They both look fab. #livingarrows

  19. August 15, 2017 / 10:48 pm

    My little girl is starting school in September, I cant believe it. Just goes so quick doesn’t it x

  20. August 20, 2017 / 6:51 am

    School really is coming around fast isn’t it? They look adorable in their new uniforms – I shed a tear when we went shopping for Jessica’s. Thanks for featuring mine for last week x

  21. August 20, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    Mine will be both at school from september too!!! I just can’t believe it. #livingarrows

  22. August 20, 2017 / 9:06 pm

    Oh so smart and grown up in their uniform! I can’t believe summer is almost over x

  23. August 20, 2017 / 9:39 pm

    They both look so brilliant! If only tiaras were part of school uniform – I guess it’s like a headband? I love that LP is so comfortable with who she is. That is just what every parents dreams of xx

  24. August 20, 2017 / 10:45 pm

    They both just look so grown up! I can’t believe that I started reading your blog when LM was just a baby and LP wasn’t even two and now they are both going to be at school in a few weeks!!

  25. August 20, 2017 / 11:16 pm

    I think I agree with LP a tiara is perfect for her school uniform! Little man will settle right in I am sure he looks very grown up in his uniform x

  26. August 21, 2017 / 5:30 am

    Look at them in their uniforms – so smart! I love the adventuring theme in the photos you have picked too! x
