Living Arrows – 50/53 {2018}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I loved seeing everyone link up last week – and it’s been so nice seeing the children grow through the year, I can’t quite believe we are counting down the last few weeks of 2018.

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.

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:

Team Stein

Parker and Me

The Roskillys

This week’s photos aren’t technically from this week BUT they were taken after last week’s photos – so you’ll let me off. I haven’t been at home this weekend as I was off on a spa break so didn’t have a chance to take photos but it was lovely to relax.

These two love playing games – and they love quiet time at home. So these photos sum up the quieter side of our lives together.

    A spa break sounds like the perfect excuse for not having taken many photos! This game looks like fun too x

    You are so lucky to have a spa break, I think I need one. They are still lovely photos!

    I’m guilty of forgetting to get games out the cupboard! I ‘m going to try my best to get lots played over Christmas. Thank you for featuring little Florence on the pictures this week x #livingarrows

    Thank you for the feature.
    Love your photos this week, they both look so engrossed in the game. This is one of my favourite things about Christmas, all of the games that we play.

    This is Holly’s favourite game! A spa weekend sounds amazing, I need more of these next year x

    A spa break sounds amazing and much-needed! Love the concentration on their faces playing this game. x

    Hope you had a great time away! Sounds like it’s the perfect break from the Christmas stress. Always nice to have some quiet time during the crazy season xx
