Living Arrows 1/52

Seeing so many other bloggers (Sian from The Mama Story, Charlotte from Baking Betsy , Hayley from Hayley at Home and Aby from You Baby Me Mummy to name but a few)  partake in this project has inspired me to get involved this year.

Living Arrows is a weekly photography project organised by Hayley at Shutterflies. She describes the project as ‘a moment of parenthood that made you feel inspired to press the shutter.’ The name is derived from a passage about childhood in Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet, ‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.’

For my first Living Arrows I have chosen photos from a trip to the local park. They were taken on a glorious blue-skied sunny morning last Tuesday. It was so mild, Archie asked if we could have a picnic! Daddy was at work and so I took the opportunity to have some time with Archie in the environment he loves the most. This little man really is in his element outside, he is such a happy chap the moment he get out that front door! He never gets bored like he does indoors and all his frustrations seem to disappear. He has had a fascination for nature in all its wonderful forms since he was a baby. I love that about him. He is a Woodland Trust nature detective and a member of both the Butterfly Conservation and Buglife. We had a family membership to the RSPB last year and managed to visit quite a few reserves in London and also in Norfolk. I am contemplating joining our local Wildlife Trust in the Spring.

  1. Such lovely photos, look at that sun!! I think it’s so nice to have a little one who loves being outdoors, Lucas is the same although sometimes we have to coax him now he is getting older, once he is outside he loves it. A woodland nature detective sounds fab, I’m going to look into it! #livingarrows

    1. Thanks Hayley! It really was such a beautiful day and I just had to keep pinching myself that it was in December! He loves being outdoors, being indoors is a lot harder work for me! Definitely look into the Woodland Trust nature detective for the boys, they will love it!
