Living Arrows – 47/52 {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:


The Smallest of Things

Adventures in Websterland

This week’s photos were taken over the weekend at Drayton Manor. I love this photo of Little Man, he looks so proud of himself and he’s finally starting to do a proper smile and, at least half the time, look at the camera too. I also LOVE his hat. It still fits from last year and I’ll be sad when he outgrows it.

LP didn’t want to go on one of the rides at Drayton Manor so sat with me to watch her Daddy and brother go on it. She was sitting so nicely, being so patient and it made me realise just how grown up she is. I can see the teenager she’ll become in this photo and part of me cannot wait. It’s such a privilege watching her grow.

    I saw your instastories from Drayton at the weekend, it looked like lots of fun. Little man looks very proud of himself indeed and LP looks happy waiting patiently too. Have a lovely week x

    It is so lovely when you catch a little glimpse of their future personalities isn’t it!

    I loved that photograph from Adventures in Websterland too!

    I haven’t been to Drayton Manor in years, though I’m looking forward to our two being old enough to go along.

    Sounds like you all had a great day at Drayton Manor. I love LP’s hat, they both look like they’re wrapped up nice and warm. #LivingArrows

    Ahh bless LP not wanting to go on the rides. S used to be like that but loves them now. I too love Little Man’s hat!

    I love kids in hats. So far this year, N has refused and I’m gutted. They make for such great photos

    Lovely photos of the kids. I love Little Man’s hat too. BattleKid had one when he was two and I was gutted when he outgrew it as the company who made them didn’t do bigger sizes. #livingarrows

    I’ve never been to Drayton Manor but it seems like a great place to visit. J has what we refer to as her ‘Chandler grimace’ and I’ll be sad when she loses hers – Little Man looks very grown up here x

    Your photos are lovely #LivingArrows

    I love the photo of LM looking through the window, he looks like he has had a fab day! From all your photos, LP always looks so calm, patient and kind. I always imagine what my four will be like when they are older, I wish we could peek into the future. Drayton does sound amazing, we are just a little bit too far north to explore at the moment, but it’s on my list for the future!

    Drayton Manor sounds fab – it’s a bit too far for us to do in a day trip though. I love both their hats this week 🙂

    We have never been to Drayton Manor hopefully one day we will get the chance. I have a few items of clothing which I am quite attached to so will be sad when they outgrow them too. I can see what you mean about LP she really does look very grown up. Thanks for hosting xx

    Oh Drayton Manor sounds like so much fun, I hope you had a lovely visit! x
