Living Arrows – 50/52 {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:

Emily and Indiana

Mama Mighalls

Toby Goes Bananas

This week’s photos were just taken at home yesterday. The children are utterly exhausted so I’ve cancelled all our plans for the last two weeks and they have really needed it. Time at home has been perfect, relaxing and just enjoying a slower pace. Little Man loves sprawling out on the extension floor, colouring and drawing. He’s so creative and really just likes to express himself in drawing.

LP did a lot of drawing and making yesterday too but she also cracked out a new fancy dress outfit. She happily dressed up as a Christmas tree for the day, for no other reason than she wanted to. I bought it in the January sale last year and had forgotten about it but I think it may be the best £4 I have ever spent.

    Jake is the same as your little man, he loves being creative and will sit for ages and happily draw, paint and create. His teacher said it’s unusual at this age for boys to enjoy those activities but I think it’s because he’s always had access to this type of activity at home. LP looks splendid in her new Christmas costume, what an absolute bargain too ! Have a lovely week x
