Living Arrows – 45/52

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!

Living Arrows

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:


White Camellias


My Sentimental Jamboree


Dear Bear and Beany

This week’s photos were taken yesterday on a day out with Lauren and her two lovely children. We don’t see each other that often but it’s one of those friendships that feel like we’ve never been apart.

LP was fascinated with everything and loved the big, thick leaves on some of the plants. She spent time writing on them with her stick, making things out of them and just playing with them. She loves learning more about the world.

Little Man was in his element in the great outdoors. He got muddier than he has in a long time, climbed everything, jumped on everything and spent time just sitting on the floor, kicking the leaves and having a rest. He had the best day.

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.

  1. Oh they are too cute! Autumn is a great time of year to get out and about! We went on a leaf trail this weekend and the girls loved it! #livingarrows

  2. Sounds like a great day out. Cute photos of your cutie children. Love the winter hats. I need to get some new ones for my big kids. It’s that time of year.

    Thank you so much for always being so kind and featuring my photo again. I’m grateful and as ever, LOVE this project so very much.

  3. Oh LP’s leaf photo is gorgeous. I do love seeing kids in hats in the winter. They always look more their age in them, rather than looking really grown up.

  4. It looks like you had a fab day out – Toby is loving all the leaves at the moment too, it’s lovely to see them so interested in the world around them isn’t it?
