Living Arrows

Living Arrows Week 1 {2018}

I am taking part in Donna from What the Redhead Said’s Living Arrows – which is a celebration of childhood!

We could all do with a little more celebration in our lives!

To quote Donna, “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 (or a few!) from our week which captures a moment of childhood

Week 1

2018 is here! I can’t quite believe it! I was looking back on my phone last night to the first week of living arrows last year and can’t quite believe how big my baby got! I blinked and he is a toddler! Living Arrows has been a great way to capture those moments, so I will continue to make it my go-to linky in 2018. I managed to get a post together every single week, which I am extremely proud of (two of them didn’t post while I was in Cuba as stupidly didn’t realise how moderated their internet is, so they weren’t officially linked up but were written!).
Soooooo, this week has been a busy one in every camera roll, I’m sure! RLT was struggling with teeth and his lack of routine over Christmas, so he was quite niggly. Thankfully, he felt better when his Dada was off for four days this week, so we’ve had a lovely long weekend – first day of which we were blessed with the best snow fall I have seen in a long time. Quite anxious taking a little one out in the snow and ensuring he doesn’t get a cold – turns out he didn’t and I did! We had a lovely time for about ten minutes in his first snow, then he decided he just wanted to sit down… we should have looked ahead and bought a sledge in advance!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Thank you so much to Donna for featuring my image of RLT and his Dada in the park ahead of Christmas – the images below are the same park five days later! xoxo

    Stunning photos of the snow! We had some just before Christmas which we loved playing in, but it didn’t last long unfortunately #livingarrows

    Very jealous of all the snow, we had a little bit at the beginning of December and the children thought it was a sign of more to come, but it never did! I think as parents we are so concerned about the children not getting too hot/cold/wet we usually overlook our own attire completely!
