Living Arrows – 46/52

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:


Very Much So


Witts in the Wild


Meme and Harri

This week’s photos were taken on a day out at Paradise Wildlife Park yesterday. We had such a nice day. Usually LP is a bit reserved when it comes to trying new things but she loved feeding the animals. Little Man wouldn’t go anywhere near them but LP loved it – choosing to feed the smaller animals as she felt sorry for them compared to the bigger more pushy ones.

Living Arrows - 46/52

Little Man has been looking bigger and bigger recently. He’s just so grown up – going to the toilet by himself, using cutlery at meal times, putting his coat and shoes on by himself. The last sign that he really is growing up is him being able to get onto a swing and swing himself – with no help at all.

  1. Aww Little Man you ARE growing up – and I don’t blame him for being a bit nervous about the animals – his big sister is super brave! And super cute 🙂 x x

  2. Wow, that’s great going on the swing. N still can’t swing himself, despite him knowing the legs forward and back, he still can’t get the lean without falling off. I’m despairing about it – weird, because everything else that’s physical he’s always been really good at doing in terms of riding bikes/scooters etc

  3. How lovely of LP feeding the smaller animals, that is so sweet! And Little Man looks so grown up on those swings, when did he get so big?! Thanks for featuring my photo this week and thanks as always for hosting x

  4. My boys are so nervous around animals and I am constantly working on it. Trying not to make them scared, but encouraging them to have a go! We went to a friends house a few weeks ago who has two dogs and two cats. I thought it was going to be a nightmare, but they were absolutely fine…I think because they were small and not jumpy! LM – what a guy! So much freedom for them when they can do new things for themselves! 🙂 xx

  5. LP did better than I would – I’m always a bit scared of feeding animals too. And LM is getting so grown up – I supposed they have to in the end don’t they?
