Living Arrows – 43/52

Here we are again – another week of Living Arrows! If you haven’t joined in before, Living Arrows 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:


Very Much So


My Sentimental Jamboree



This week’s photos were both taken in the garden, having a practice ‘jump for Pudsey‘ where both children loved being able to jump on and off the garden benches and really just get outside on a day which wasn’t the best as far as the weather is concerned.

Both LP and Little Man really love jumping. It’s a new found love of theirs and something that just makes them so happy. It’s a combination of the freedom, the independence and the sheer fun of free-fall.

As always, I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week – thanks for taking the time to link up! This really is such a big part of my blogging week and I love that so many people stop by each week.

    N suddenly likes jumping too, from what I would class ridiculously high for him. In just a school year, they really do come on physically and more confidently able to push themselves.

    Love the jumping photos! Max has only just grasped proper jumping where both feet leave the ground, but it’s suddenly his favourite thing to do!

    Gorgeous photos, I love seeing this series on people’s blogs and seeing the little snapshots of their children’s lives.

    Thanks for featuring my photo this week! Lyra is obsessed with jumping as well, I think it’s because she’s only recently learnt how to jump properly. Obviously she’s nowhere near the leaping of your little ones yet but she still loves it. x

    What fab action shots! Jumping and climbing are such fun. Boo loves jumping off thing at the minute, she keeps giving me a heart attack!

    I love that they are practising their jumping! I remember doing things like that when I was little. Getting ready for something at school, and making sure I would do my best. Little Man really isn’t little any more though! 😉 x

    Brilliant photos this week – there’s nothing better than seeing the joy little kids get from something simple like jumping off a bench 🙂
