Living Arrows – 38/52

Here we are again – another week of Living Arrows! If you haven’t joined in before, Living Arrows 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:


Hot Pink Wellingtons


Life as Our Little Family


Inside Out & About

This week’s photos were taken at home. In between work, school and running errands we haven’t had much time for anything else. But the children haven’t minded – and Little Man has been loving this new addition to our play house. Could they possibly have any more fun in the garden?!

LP has found going back to school, swimming lessons and the busy life of a five year old pretty exhausting. So Saturday afternoon involved not much more than sofa snuggles and TV. Sometimes that is the only thing for it – she slept well that night!

    Thanks so much for sharing our shot! I love the look of your playhouse – that looks amazing! And the binoculars are a fab touch. School is such a long and intense day – it must always be such a shock to the system starting a new term!

    I do love the photos this week. I remember it took some time for Sylvia to adjust to full time school. It can be really full on..and swimming on top but be exhausting but worth it of course!

    I always think the second week of school wipes them out more than the first. Our weekend was manic so didn’t really help N have chill out time, but it did work with getting him to do his reading for the first time asking to do it! Whoop.

    N would love those binoculars on his climbing frame too!

    Thanks for hosting

    I have just clicked on the playhouse post and that playhouse is incredible! I bet Little Man is loving it and those binoculars are fantastic. I love that he is dressed in his Spiderman attire too – what a dude! x

      Just after this he went to Marvel Universe at the O2 with his cousin and grandparents – best day out ever apparently! Hence the Spiderman gear! x

    Those binoculars look AWESOME! Aww LP looks so sleep there but I bet she had a lot of fun – they’re growing up aren’t they x x

    There is so much fun to be had just playing in the garden! And snuggles on the sofa are the best, taking time to just chill and enjoy the moment. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing these precious moments!

    Great pictures from last week – love the sunglasses! Wow, love the binoculars too – what a cool play house! The simple days are always the best aren’t they? – so good to chill out now and again. Thanks for hosting and for always taking the time to comment on our posts. x

    I love those binoculars and the playhouse – Toby would absolutely love it! I wish we lived nearer so we could come and play at your house 🙂
