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.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. 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!
