Living Arrows – 51/52 {2020}

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!

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

This week’s photos were taken yesterday with some ‘gifted’ Lego we were sent to feature over on Instagram but I thought the photos were lovely for Living Arrows too.

It’s been a really strange time here. We’re in Tier 4 and basically in the same scale lockdown as we were in March – but with other parts of the country in other tiers and having more, different freedoms to us. But I know many are also in the same boat – and can now not see anyone outside our household over Christmas

Thankfully though, the children are fine. They are happy just being at home, understand the need to not see others to keep everyone safe and are just going along with it. I think the Lego helps!

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.

And before I go, Merry Christmas to every single one of you and your families too. This is not going to be a normal Christmas, not by a long shot, but we can still make it as lovely as possible. I hope you have a nice Christmas whatever you end up doing and whoever you spend it with.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

    We are currently in tier 2 but as far as I’m concerned we are sticking to tier 4 rules as it’s just safer for the time being. Wishing you and yours a very merry christmas xxx

  2. We still LOVE lego all these years later. Every year we try to get the new festive set to put together and add to our collection.

    Wishing you and your beautiful family the very best. Happy Christmas.
