Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows! I love this project, I’ve been doing it for so many years now and it’s always nice seeing who links up and watching children and families grow throughout the year.
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. As a little tip, I only really feature landscape photos – and very occasionally square photos and I’ll never feature the same blogger’s photos two weeks in a row.
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!
One other thing before this week’s photos… I am toying with the idea of stopping Living Arrows at the end of this year. I have now either participated in or run Living Arrows for seven full years and it’s quite a commitment. Plus, less and less people are joining in which makes sharing three photos each week and trying to vary whose photos I share quick difficult.
I’d love your feedback. Are you hoping to continue next year? Would you mind if I stopped hosting it? Would you mind if I carried on hosting but didn’t feature other people’s photos each week? If I do carry on I’d still comment on everyone’s posts each week as I think the community aspect is really important. Let me know what you think.
Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:
This week’s photos were taken on a day at the park yesterday. We were there for a few hours and it got super cold but the children didn’t mind at all. They loved scooting, playing and spending time outside with their friends.
I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week and seeing the photos you share. If you link up make sure to go and read some of the other posts and I’ll be commenting and sharing them through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part – see you again next week!
