Living Arrows – 6/52 {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:

Meme and Harri

The Smallest of Things

Little Fish

This week’s photos were taken on Saturday. LP was invited to a Young Driver session at a racecourse not too far from where we live. She got to drive an electric car with an instructor and then drove me round the course. It was a pretty amazing experience for her.

Little Man loves Thomas more than anything else in the world and so he loves spending the last chunk of Saturday making a bit Take n Play train track around the lounge. Thomas may also have been on the TV at the same time. Little Man + Thomas = one happy boy.

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.

    What gorgeous features!

    I love the way her hair is shining in the photo – such a beautiful colour. My little man loves Thomas too, so he’d have been delighted there as well!

    Ahhh, a lovely pair of transport-y photos from you this week. That Young Driver course sounds fun, I think Dylan would love something like that. And I love that sandy faced photo that you chose from last week, it always makes me smile when I see kids really getting stuck into eating some sand. x

    Thomas is always a winner in our house too! Along with Paw Patrol and Dora the Explorer!

    What a great idea for a day out!! Mine are a little young yet but something to keep in mind for when they’re older 🙂

    The driving lesson sounds like great fun! I bet she loved it. My eldest son is so into trains at the moment, he could play with them for hours.

    Aw, thanks for featuring me honey! I love the newborn photo, makes me so wistful! Love the photo of LP too! The young driver experience sounds amazing! xx

  20. February 8, 2017 / 11:16 am

    I had no idea little ones could do a driving experience! Very cool. I think all children love Thomas et al, don’t they! We got Pixie a train set for Christmas and it’s one of her favourite toys!

    Thanks for hosting xx

  21. February 8, 2017 / 1:55 pm

    That driving experience looks fab – I know Max would love doing that when he’s a bit older! Having said that, anything to do with trains is a big hit for him at the moment too! Thanks as always for hosting!

  22. February 9, 2017 / 12:35 pm

    Aww those photos are lovely. What a nice week. The Young Driver course sounds fun, I think my older two would love this. Might look into it for their birthday next year. Your photos and week always make me smile. I love seeing what you are all up to xx

    I have my sister booked in for a Young Driver experience soon. She is 15 though so I think she gets a proper car! 🙂

  24. February 9, 2017 / 4:24 pm

    The driving experience for LP looks and sounds amazing! Without wishing the time away I sooo look forward to sharing these memories with my little.

  25. February 12, 2017 / 2:43 pm

    That sounds like an absolutely amazing experience! I’m not sure how I would feel about being driven around! For some reason Monkey has never really be that interested in trains. I sometimes wonder if thats my fault for not wanting to constantly build track?! Maybe I should make more of an effort. Thanks for hosting #LivingArrows

  26. February 12, 2017 / 3:02 pm

    Meme and harry’s photo is so sweet 🙂 What a fab experience for LP and yourself may I add. Were you a little bit worried? x

  27. February 12, 2017 / 7:17 pm

    I love the sound of LP’s driving experience. It really sounds so brilliant! I think my boys would love it, and it sounds like she did so well. My eldest used to just love Thomas…and I admit, I love Thomas too! The trains are always so polite to one another, which I like! Hehe! x

  28. February 12, 2017 / 10:43 pm

    The driving experience sounds brilliant – what a cool thing for LP to be able to do! And LM looks very happy with his trains – I can’t wait for the day that both of mine can manage to play quietly with something by themselves!
