Living Arrows – 38/52 {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:

Mummy and Moose

Hannah and the Twiglets

Team Stein

This week’s photos were taken on a trip to the park on Saturday. The park is at one of our favourite places – The Lookout in Bracknell – but they’ve implemented a ticketing system where you have to pay a booking fee which is then given back as cafe credit. It’s not something I agree with at all, and stops many people using the playground, but the children had a great time and were oblivious to the politics around it.

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. Aww lovely photos, I’m sure they enjoyed themselves! I definitely don’t agree with the fee either, it’s ridiculous and definitely off putting. Why do they need to have a fee, surely just a booking system minus the fee would suffice?

  2. It’s a tough one as I think businesses that are offering free admission via ticketing are getting so many people not turn up, maybe that’s why they have implemented the fee? I don’t agree with it but I can see the logic. Another example of how sad times are at the moment.

  3. Oh no that’s ridiculous! We love the lookout, that’s a shame they’ve done that. I’m pleased they still have fun x
