Living Arrows – 4/52 {2019}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows – and thanks to everyone who linked up last week. I love this project and it’s so nice getting to know the families that participate in Living Arrows each week and this year it looks like a really lovely mix of old and new faces. 

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.

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


Team Stein

This week’s photos Were taken on a day out with Lauren on Saturday. We went to Polesdon Lacey National Trust for the first time and the children really enjoyed it – until it started raining.

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!

    Little man and LP looks like they had lots of fun, especially little man climbing trees ! We are just about to sign up for a National Trust membership as I think we will get lots out of it this year x

    I don’t think I have visited a National Trust park before (I might be wrong), but I keep seeing it so often in other peoples’ blogs, it really makes me want to go to one now.

    I love pictures of children in trees, reminds me of Sound of Music and all children should try and climb a tree.
    The rain ruined our plans this weekend too!

    We’ve been debating joining the National Trust, especially as Clumber Park is only 10 minutes away from us. I think both Iris and Ian the dog would benefit! So glad to be back doing Living Arrows posts, really missed joining in x

    Your day out with Lauren looks lovely Donna. I love visiting National Trust properties. I have really used my memberships so well over the last year and the kids love visiting all the different sites.

    Lovely photos. Looks like a great place to explore.

    LM looks so happy to be up in the tree! I keep meaning to renew our National Trust passes!

    Love the outdoor photos and how colourful your daughters hat is. I also wish I knew how to braid hair.

    Thank you for including Florence! I love that NT places get us all outdoors and kids climbing trees. Lovely pictures Donna #livingarrows

    Poledson Lacey is one of our favourites too although I think they need to do a bit more with the play area. Its beautiful when the roses are out. I am sure the National Trust is the best value membership card out there! xx

    It looks like a lovely day – we definitely need to make sure we make the most of our new NT membership this year.
