Living Arrows – 48/52

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!

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


Baking Betsy


Toby Goes Bananas


My Sentimental Jamboree

This week’s photos were both taken at the same time – which is unusual. I took the children to Chessington World of Adventures’ Winter’s Tale on Saturday and one of the highlights for them, aside from meeting Father Christmas, was decorating gingerbread.

The icing was quite hard to use but they both gave me instructions to decorate their biscuits and came away pretty pleased with them. We are now well and truly feeling the festive vibe in our house!

    What a great job on the gingerbread decorating! I know it’s not even December yet, but I’m so ready for Christmas this year – I’ve resisted putting up the tree, but next weekend it’s happening! Thanks for hosting
