Living Arrows – 6/52 {2021}

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 its 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 favourite photo from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blog. 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’s my favourite photo from last week:

This week’s photos were taken over the weekend at home. The kids had a very quiet weekend, mainly spent in their PJs, playing, reading, making and just relaxing. It was definitely what they needed and has turned into a bit of a tradition here – weekends of down time.

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!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. We too have had a more relaxed week, minus moving furniture and some serious hard labour at my Mum’s house. The kids have also been able to enjoy a little more downtime and they really do need it right now.

  2. Weekends of down time are definitely the best at the moment. We rarely leave the sofa, buffet lunch, take away for dinner and sport on the TV in between. I think we often think we have to do all the things all the time but actually there is really something to be said for stopping.

    Your pics are gorgeous.

  3. We’re the same at the moment – weekends are just for chilling. I was just saying today I almost can’t imagine what it will be like when all our activities start up again, it’ll feel like we constantly doing something I think!
