Living Arrows – 9/53 {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:

This Glorious Life

Rock and Roll Pussycat


This week’s photos were just taken at home yesterday as I was away on a lovely spa break on Friday and Saturday. LP loves reading and is so good at reading now. I had no idea children could read so early in life – and couldn’t remember when I actually learnt to read myself. So listening to LP read with such confidence makes me so proud. It’s a joy to see her love of reading.

Little Man loves trains – and built this train all by himself. Notice he’s wearing his Thomas jumper too – he literally lives and breathes trains at the moment. This week he has also embraced a lovely natural smile instead of the cheesey grin he’s been sporting over recent months.
