Living Arrows – 4/53 {2018}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I loved seeing everyone link up last week – and cannot wait to see the children grow through 2018.

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:

Adventures in Websterland

Glimmer of Hope

White Camellias

This week’s photos were taken on Saturday during a wet and rainy walk at a local National Trust site. The children were happy to get wrapped up and out of the house – especially with wellies on. We’re trying to get Little Man to do more ‘normal’ faces in photos rather than the many, many outtakes we get each time we try and take a photo. Staring eyes and cheesy grins a-plenty! Now, this is more like a lovely, normal, face.

And LP. So tiny still yet so grown up. She’s six going on sixteen and it’s so lovely watching her grow. She has a thoughtful, questioning mind and we have had some great conversations recently. I’m sure she’s going to spend life questioning everything around her.

    Thank you for featuring my little bird watcher this week 🙂 Love the photos. They look so alike. My eldest (boy) also questions everything all the time. He is such an intense little boy… x

    I love their coordinating coats and hats – so adorable!

    We went through a stage where my son would always pull faces or do mad eyes for every shot, so I had to covertly capture him unawares.

    Yay for a fellow questioner! I hope Athena never grows out of asking lots of questions. Great that you got out and about despite the rainy weather. All of the photos that you chose from last week are stunning. I feel like I need to massively improve my photography skills!

    I have the same trouble with Monkey he tends to look in the oppposite direct or pull a grimace! Any suggestions on how to stop it gratefully received! The both look very grown up bless them, going out in the rain is obligatory this time of year isn’t it xx

    I love their hats! Trying to get my three to smile nicely or stand nicely for a photo is hard work – they just want to dab all the time!

  20. January 28, 2018 / 9:51 pm

    Lovely pictures. We’re going through the cheesy grin stage here too.

    Fab photos – I love their hats! And I feel your pain with the silly faces 🙂
