Living Arrows – 41/53 {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:

This week’s Living Arrows is late up because I haven’t been at home this weekend – and so I had no photos of the children to use. Instead, I took photos when we got to school this morning, when the children were relaxing in the car until it was time to go in.

We usually use this time to do school reading – if we haven’t done it the night before – or the children read by themselves or take a little toy to play with. We have to leave just after 8am to get to school and get a parking space and then have fifteen or twenty minutes before the school gates open so it’s nice that the children don’t mind passing this time in the car.

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!

    I love that you have enough time in the mornings for them to relax in the car before school! Thankfully our mornings are rarely rushed and we get to relax at home before we head out x

    That seems like a nice relaxed way to start the mornings x

    Sometimes it’s just easier to get them into the car and have some minutes of calm before the mad dash into the playground. Hope you had a lovely weekend? x#livingarrows

    I used to love giving my girls stuff to do but Squidgy gets travel sick if she has anything So we have to try and play I Spy etc instead!

    I love that you use the time wisely. So smart to get there early, rather than have a battle to get a space!

    It must be nice to sit and relax in the car before the morning rush into school. I’m super lucky to work in the same place and so parking isn’t an issue. We don’t have the time to stop and relax though, it’s all cylinders on full fire until we are in the building!

    I’m impressed that you get to school that long before the gates open! It’s lovely that the children are both so into their books, too.

    Parenting aspirations right there! I would love to be up and out early and not rushing around x

    We sometimes sit in the car waiting for the gates to open too. Toby actually is more settled if most of his class are already in the classroom when we get there rather than be in the cloakroom crush so being a bit later is better all round.

    We hae to drive to school too, although I never thought about taking things in the car to keep them amused. Will have to remember this next time. They both look very chilled out xx

    So nice that they get to have a bit of chill time after getting themselves up and ready.
