Living Arrows – 7/53 {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:

The Ladybirds’ Adventures

Mudpie Fridays

Little Fish

This week’s photos were taken at a National Trust property at the weekend. LP and Little Man love a walk through the woods, a bit of history and some fresh air so NT places are always a winner. How grown up does Little Man look here?!

LP has her moments at the minute. She’ll be grumpy for no reason, she’ll moan about not liking or enjoying things that we know she loves and on any day out it takes her a while to warm up. It’s hard work but when she settles in she is her usual happy self – and normal service resumes.

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!

    It looks like you had a great weekend, I keep thinking about buying an NT family pass as we have a fair few places nearby that belong to them. Daisy is the same as LP at the moment, grumpy at the slightest thing it’s like having a teen some days. Hope you have a fantastic week ahead x

    I often find that my son moans about going anywhere until he arrives. Then he’s off exploring and enjoying himself before I know it.

    Thanks so much for the feature! Much appreciated!
    Ah, they all have their ups and downs don’t they? Looks like they had fun! I love their hats! We really need to start exploring some National Trust properties, there’s so many lovely places to visit. x

    We’re just joining the National Trust so i’m excited to explore. Is it true you have to have permission to post photos from NT places on your blog?x

    You just can’t beat a NT property!! We should organise something for the Easter holidays to go to one with the children 🙂 Also, don’t tell me that with LP, I thought that was just a toddler thing! 😉 xx

    lovely photos – all bundled up and ready for adventure!

    Sorry to read that about LP. It is all a part of growing up isn’t it and glad to hear she’s still her usual self once she warms up!

  12. February 13, 2018 / 8:36 am

    I love their hats! We keep thinking about getting a National Trust Membership as we have so many of them near us!

  13. February 13, 2018 / 9:37 pm

    Alice is like this and its very frustrating as you know your going through the motions to get them to their happy place again!

    We love going to NT places, always so much to look at and do. Thanks for hosting x

    There’s nothing better than a NT visit. We get our moneys worth and have some lovely places up North.

    Gotta love a National Trust day out! We get such good value from our membership. Really lovely these natural outdoor photos.

    I’m really enjoying this link up Donna, so thank you for running it!
    National Trust sites are a godsend for fresh air and instagrammable pictures! #livingarrows

    Monkey can be the same as LP drives me bonkers! But you are right you can’t beat the National Trust for a good day out. Thank you for picking my photo from last week xx

    NT days out are perfect with little ones aren’t they! We love our memberships x

  20. February 18, 2018 / 10:55 pm

    We keep talking about getting NT membership but I don’t know if there are enough places local to us that it would make it worth our while. I think I’ve said it before but I love LP and LM’s hats 🙂
