Living Arrows – 45/52 {2017}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I am loving how many people have decided to make Living Arrows a part of their blogging routine for 2017, it is so lovely to have you all here.

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.

Also – something new here, I will be trying to resurrect the Living Arrows Instagram account! So, use #LivingArrows on Instagram and follow @LivingArrows_ and then I will share my favourite images each week – I’ll probably try and do one a day but we’ll see how I go! I’ll probably feature the previous week’s images the following week. Anyway, follow and use the hashtag and we’ll see what happens!

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:

Mummy to Dex

My Sentimental Jamboree


This week’s photos were just taken at home. LP loves to wear hair bands and they make her look so grown up – although they have a tendency to fall down her forehead making her look like the Karate Kid or something!

Little Man loves to learn. He loves to learn about the world, about space, animals – everything. He’s like a sponge, soaking up information and his reading is coming on in leaps and bounds. School is just the best thing for him.

    I love LPs headband, it really suits her but does make her look very grown up! Its crazy how fast they progress in the reception year isn’t it? They start just knowing basic letters/words and come out the other side reading and writing. Amy absolutely loves reading, and I think part of that from watching J & L read for so long, she’s excited to join in too! Your globe looks brilliant, so bright and modern. Lovely photos xx

    I love LP’s headband, she does look grown-up. Daisy has just begun her obsession with hair accessories thanks to Jo Jo Bow’s ! It’s wonderful seeing how much kids enjoy learning, I find that I learn things new too thanks to them too. That globe looks awesome. Have a lovely week x

    Little Man looks so grown up now – glad he is loving learning. LP’s hairband looks adorable – I wish Daisy would wear those!

    I have a feeling we need to enjoy them wanting to learn as much as we can while it lasts…..and then hope it lasts until University!!

    They both look older to me this week. Lily likes hairbands on occasion but I wish she would wear them more often. They are cute of little girls! Thank you for featuring the photo of Lily this week. It is one of my favs. Thanks also again and again, for hosting! I LOVE LIVING ARROWS!!!

    You have reminded me that I should get Arthur a globe for Christmas, I swear he spends half his time looking at maps. Lovely photos as always Donna, and i really adore the shot of the lake and woods that you chose!

    LP looks so different with a hairband, gorgeous girl. Alice is the same soaking everything up at the moment and constantly wanting to learn x

    Lovely photos. I can’t get my daughters to wear anything on their heads! #LivingArrows

    LP looks gorgeous with a headband on. It really suits her. My boy is obsessed with facts and has both a globe and an atlas in his room. Him and his dad travel to different countries every night and learn something new 😊

    Ooh LP’s headband is so pretty, the colour suits her hair perfectly! x

    LP does look grown up – I love her headband! And I’m glad to hear Troy is doing well at school and enjoying it. Toby loves learning too – but at the moment all he wants to learn about is dinosaurs!

    LP looks very grown up in deed, I love these toe head bands I often try them myself . Although I struggle to pull it off so well! X
