Living Arrows – 34/52 {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:

Mudpie Fridays

Chatter Fox

The Mum Diaries

This week’s photo of LP was taken at Legoland yesterday. It was a pretty pants day out in all honesty – the kids didn’t mind, they just love looking at Lego models – but it was far too busy, queues were huge, there was a real lack of social distancing and we left after 4 hours as we just didn’t feel comfortable. We’ll go again outside of peak times or when life has settled down a little.

On the flip side, we went on a really local day out to Aldershot Military Museum on Friday and it was fantastic. Such a bargain with free return for a year, very few people and a great military style assault course too. Little Man did monkey bars by himself for the first time and was so proud of himself!

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. I’ve certainly found that complacency is increasing, I really think introducing masks has made it worse, people seem to think wearing a mask makes them invincible and they no longer have to social distance. Sorry to hear you didn’t feel safe.

    Thank you for featuring my strangely levitating child!

  2. Aww that is lovely to see everyone over the years. I can’t believe how grown up A looks in the Lego Friends picture, she seems to have changed in such a short time xx

  3. I think people are starting to forget about social distancing sadly and it makes for awkward moments. I hope that you get to return when things are ‘normal’ which I only hope that one day they are.

  4. That’s a shame Legoland wasn’t great – I really want to take the boys sometime but I think we might have to wait until things are more back to ‘normal’. And well done to LM on the monkey bars – I’ve never been able to do them !

  5. Such a shame about Legoland – I’ve read posts from others saying the same. I think a lot of people are just not bothered at all anymore 🙁

  6. That’s really sad about Legoland, I’ve heard lots of people say that its just too busy. Its a shame they’ve increased capacity too much x
