Living Arrows – 43/53 {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:

Team Stein

Toby Goes Bananas

Pondering Parenthood

This photo of Little Man was taken yesterday when we went to a country park with lovely Mel and two of her children. It was such a nice day out and when we arrived I took this picture of Little Man in the rear view mirror – he didn’t expect me to be able to take it and so had a lovely, natural expression on.

LP’s photo was taken on Saturday at Legoland. Since her front tooth became wobbly she has either been wobbling it or sticking her tongue through the gap in every photo so this one, where she’s smiling perfectly and oblivious of her gap, was lovely to find on my camera.

  1. Oh I adore the natural expressions, J find it’s really hard to smile for the camera and so I usually chase him around in the hope for ‘natural smiles’. Such a smashing picture!

  2. Thanks for featuring my picture this week 🙂 I love both your photos this week – that one in the rear view mirror is so lovely. Toby’s got gaps at the bottom at the moment and he’s just the same with this tongue 🙂
