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 its 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 favourite photo from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blog. 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’s my favourite photo from last week:
This week’s photos were taken on a day out yesterday. We were really lucky with the weather this weekend – bright and dry, my favourite weather at this time of year. I’ve spoken about how LP has always been petite but suddenly she’s grown and is, for the first time in her life, in the clothes made for the age she currently is. She skipped age 9-10 completely and went straight from 8-9 to 10-11 and seems to look so much more grown up with it too. But, because of this, she doesn’t get picked up often anymore! So just look at her happy face during a pick up cuddle.
It’s also rare to get a natural smile from Little Man in a photo. He doesn’t smile on demand very well at all and so we just roll with it. But, yesterday, I asked if I could take a photos of his new hat and he gave me just the nicest smile. I love it when we manage to take photos that capture him so perfectly. My favourite boy.
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!
