Living Arrows – 3/52 {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.

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 with Baby Kicks

Baking Betsy

Battle Mum

This week’s photos were taken on Saturday, when we just had a PJ day. Little Man was under the weather and had a temperature so he spent the day snuggled on the sofa, watching movies and occasionally working up enthusiasm to use his tablet for a couple of minutes before relaxing again.

LP wasn’t poorly but she’s had an exhausting week at school so appreciated a day in her PJs too. She was happy watching TV, doing some crafts and just taking some time out. Every so often we just need a day to get back to normal and get over a busy week – and that’s what Saturday was all about.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. If I thought a lot of people joined in for the first week then I was amazed at the amount that joined last week! I’m going to keep commenting on all of the posts that link up and sharing my favourite photos each week. Thanks so much for taking part and for adding to this great little community we’re creating – make sure to go and comment on a few other posts at some point during the week too.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my picture Donna. As soon as I saw it on my camera I knew I had to share it for the Living Arrows project. This week certainly won’t be as good. We’ve had a poorly boy over the weekend too. I’m hoping warmer weather comes soon and we can all shake off the bugs that seem to be lurking around every corner.

  2. Aw, hope Little Man is better now. We’ve had quite a few of those days ourselves recently and I’m SO looking forward to getting out and about this week!

    Thanks for hosting x

  3. PJ days are the best! Rose has been under the weather again yesterday too and only just got out of bed (it’s Monday morning 11am!) Hope little man is better and LP has caught up on some rest before another busy school week x

  4. I love your picks from last week Donna! Especially the hot chocolate one – it’s so sweet. I agree that sometimes everyone just need a down day to relax, recuperate and appreciate the house. I’m not good at PJ days, but I do love snugging in our bed reading together. Sounds like the perfect Saturday to me xx
