Living Arrows – 43/52 {2020}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows! I love this project, I’ve been doing it for so many years now and it’s always nice seeing who links up and watching children and families grow throughout the year.

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 and I’ll never feature the same blogger’s photos two weeks in a row.

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:

Inside Laura’s Life

Hannah and the Twiglets

Team Stein

This week’s photos were taken at the weekend at home. We are still in full swing of the loft work and have spent this weekend trying to make a dent in emptying our storage unit and clearing out LP’s room ready for the decorators to come this week.

I took this photo of LP whilst I was moving boxes around and it pretty much sums up this time in our lives. Furniture and boxes everywhere and yet the children just get on with it. Sitting at the island, playing on her tablet whilst there’s complete chaos around her.

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!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
