Living Arrows – 5/52 {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. It’s definitely one of my favourite parts of each week!

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.

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 Glorious Life

Hot Pink Wellingtons

Dear Beautiful

Last week our garden got cleared of extension rubble and we were able to get out there for the first time in months. We took the opportunity to go on a top secret mission – dressed appropriately for it too!

Little Man especially loved his spy duties and his magnifying glass. We spent time investigating the vegetable patches – looking healthier than I expected after falling down our list of priorities this winter!

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. If I thought a lot of people joined in for the first week then I was amazed at the amount that joined last week! I’m going to keep commenting on all of the posts that link up and sharing my favourite photos each week. Thanks so much for taking part and for adding to this great little community we’re creating – make sure to go and comment on a few other posts at some point during the week too.

    Oh my goodness I love these spy outfits, there’s nothing quite like dressing up for children is there? x

    Looks like you have yourself some Sherlock Holmes wannabes there. I love how children find the most mundane of activities so exciting, you can turn anything in to an adventure.

  19. January 30, 2017 / 9:21 pm

    I love them dressed as spies!!! They look absolutely fabulous. Fingers crossed for your vegetable patch. Even eating one thing that you’ve grown is so so satisfying…even if you have to share one carrot! Haha! x

    Thanks so much for the feature Donna! I love the detective photos – they look like they really got into the spirit of it! You’ve reminded me about my much neglected vegetable patch too. I’m sure it’s not too late to think about planting for this year!
