Living Arrows – 9/52 {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:

Hannah and the Twiglets

This week’s photos were taken over the weekend at home. I’ve had a weekend of getting work done whilst the kids have played and Dave took them to the park a couple of times. I took this photo of Little Man in the garden and it’s my new favourite of him, it shows his real smile – one that really reaches his eyes.

LP asked me to paint her nails on Sunday morning and was so happy. She always asks to paint nails, I always say tomorrow and then she forgets for a few more days!

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. I love that Athena likes painting her nails. I can’t help thinking that if I had done that at her age I would still be a nail biter at 50+! The only way I can stop is to have gel nails every fortnight, which means months into lockdown they are looking appalling!

  2. Ahh that’s a lovely photo, my eldest in particular struggles with a natural smile in front of the camera. I really need to do my nails, she looks so happy with the results. Hope the transition back to school for you is a smooth and easy one x
