Living Arrows – 48/52 {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:

Pondering Parenthood

Battle Mum


This week’s photos were taken at the weekend. We were in Telford for a couple of nights and had such a nice time. Little Man had his very first go on a roundabout and loved making it spin all by himself.

LP pretty much loved everything in the park. It was so nice to spend proper time with the children and considering the amount we crammed into the weekend the children were so, so good.

    Your weekends always seem so busy and full of adventure! I love park visits at this time of year – always less people 😉

    My ex-inlaws used to live in Telford and we would visit town park a few times a month. It’s such a fantastic park isn’t it ! I have almost identical photo’s of my bigger kids on the slide and roundabout. It sounds like you had an amazing weekend in Telford, Have a great week x

    Telford is where we started out in the UK from Ireland! It looks like both the kids were enjoying themselves at the park! And thanks so much for featuring our picture x #livingarrows

    That park does look amazing, it sounds like you are making the most of your weekends at the moment! I second what Sherry says, I love parks at this time a year, while the shops are getting busier, my favourite outdoor spots are getting quieter! Hope you have a lovely week x

    Love playground photos, and that little roundabout looks great – perfect for them to learn how to spin it themselves! Our local park has been so quiet lately, it’s lovely!

    It looks like you had a great time in Telford – you really made me want to go back to Blists Hill again! It looks like a fab park too 🙂

    It’s so nice to get away as a family and leave all the chores at home! Looks like a great park to explore. Glad you had a great time and I’m sorry my comment is late this week xx
