Living Arrows – 6/53 {2018}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I loved seeing everyone link up last week – and cannot wait to see the children grow through 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.

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

Puzzle Patterns


This week’s photos were just taken at home. Little Man loves to go on an adventure and when we’re at home he makes it into an adventure by packing his backpack and carrying it around the house. It’s slightly odd but very cute all at the same time.

LP is still spotty from her chicken pox but they have cleared up so well. She still has about a dozen stubborn spots left but I’m hoping they’ll be gone in another week or so.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. 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!

    Holly is the same with her backpack. She fills it up with all sorts and off she goes (to the kitchen!) so funny! X

    Little Man looks so grown up in that photo ! I love his backpack too. I’m sure all LP spots will soon be gone, she’s recovered so fast which is fantastic. Have a great week x

    He looks so cute with his backpack! Mine do the same and pretend to go on their travels and stay in hotels and all sorts! Hope LP’s spots clear up soon x

    Wow! LP and Little Man suddenly look so grown up this week! Isla loves to wear her backpack anywhere….though at the moment she’s not fussed whether it has anything in it or not!

    My little man is obsessed with bags too! He’s got a collection of backpacks all over the house

    Thanks so much for the feature 🙂 My daughters are the same with their bags – always stuffing things into handbags and backpacks and pretending to head off into the world! So adorable! xx

    Lovely photos! I can’t wait for the day when my son starts to pack his own bag 🙂 Hope the chicken pox spots disappear soon!

    Totally loving joining in (I’ve been so busy in the last couple of days and nearly missed this week but I really wanted to have a full year worth of photos to look back on). I love the idea of having an adventure at home! Amazing to see potential adventure in the everyday.

    So glad the chicken pox are clearly up nicely! I’m not looking forward to that stage. Aww the backpack picture is amazing, looks like it could be in a catalog haha.

    So happy to join in again – it’s been a while! Aw, I love Little Man’s back packing habit – so sweet! It’s the kind of thing my son would do! 😉

    Thanks for hosting x

    Glad to hear A is over her chicken pox! Love your little guy’s backpack! Aoife loves her backpack too!

    Troy’s face looks so grown up in that photo! Poor Athena, M was luck as her spots were on her legs but they are still hanging around!

    Love Little Miss’s bag! Glad to hear LP is on the mend after her chicken pox. We’re stuck in with it at the moment

    Monkey does the same with his Rucksack and fills it with all sorts of random stuff! I hope LPs spots have healed now and its not passed to Little Man xx

    That’s such a cool backpack – I think I’d want to carry it every where if I had one too. I’m glad to hear LP has recovered – any sign of spots on LM yet? 🙂
