Living Arrows – 39/52 {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.

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:

Dear Bear and Beany

Glimmer of Hope

Katy Kicker

Little Man’s photo this week was taken during some down time. He loves his tablet and I love how he’ll just throw himself down somewhere with it, however he’s comfortable.

LP’s photo was taken after school on Friday. We were at the park and she was chatting to me over the top of the climbing frame. She’s growing up, getting braver on climbing frames and getting more sure of herself. But she’s still my little, tiny LP – and I love how much personality she has.

    I know tablets can get a bad rep sometimes but kids really do love them and get so much from them I think. What a great photo of LP you can really see her personality shining through.

    It was lovely to meet you again at Blog On yesterday, thanks as ever for hosting Living Arrows I really do enjoy taking part every week x

    My boy loves his tablet (or loved it, it broke a couple of weeks ago). It’s really handy when they need to wind down for a few minutes.

    Oh thanks for choosing one of my photographs!

    You can just see that LP has a lovely personality and nature from the way she looks in photographs. I love Living Arrows!

    Monkey is always happy when he gets a chance to chill out with his tablet too. Love the photo of LP she looks very pleased with herself. We’ve just given up gym on a Friday after school so I hope we may get to the park after school now too! I miss it. x
