Living Arrows – 42/52 {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:

Somewhere After the Rainbow

Life at Cooks Cabin

The Frenchie Mummy

This week’s photos were taken on Saturday during a trip to the park. Little Man insists on being in the baby swing – although, clearly, he isn’t a baby anymore. He looks so grown up in this photo, so sure of himself, and just so big. I do often wonder where my baby went.

LP loves a park. She loves to slide, climb and run. She’s so confident, fearless and a ball of energy and fun. She really is a joy to be around and even an hour at the park is an adventure for her.

  1. Isn’t is fantastic that we are in October but park visits are still possible, definitely a plus side to the unseasonal weather. My little girl is the same as LP at the park, totally fearless it’s so much fun to watch them enjoying life without a care. Have a great week x

  2. My daughter used to insist on being in the baby swing now she has learnt to swing herself so has decided she’s too grown up for it. You have beautiful children <3

  3. Thanks for featuring mine in amongst these lovely photos. Ours is very much the same with playing on slides and so on in the park, although she very much refused to go in the baby swing once she hit 3 – that was a short, sharp shock to the system, thats for sure! x

  4. They look like they’re having a fab time, I really wish we had a really good park within walking distance of our house, our local one is a bit rubbish so we don’t go there very often.
