“Happy Gappy”

A very proud little girl showing off her 3rd gap (in total), the first on the top row! She had been wriggling, pushing and pulling on it for a day or so and she was very pleased with herself when it finally gave in!

Tooth fairy duly visited and at 4am I was woken up and given an update by our 6 year old. As soon as she was confident that I had understood the fact that she was one coin richer due to the late night visit she climbed up and started snoring in the big bed…

Big bench, little girl…

Mummy and Alex is spending the week in England helping Grandad move house. That means Daddy has been a single dad and Kaelyn have been ruling the house! Biggest challenge (1/2 way through the week) is admittedly the hair… No fancy plaits this week! Daddy does not know anything but a very traditional Pony tail…

Another change in the routine has been that we are biking to the kindergarden in the morning… Well, Kaelyn have been biking up to now. The change is that we are using Mummy’s bike and Kaelyn gets a ride while Daddy is pedaling the best he can to get up the hill from home… I had no idea of how badly out of shape I have become until I did this the first day… Good training program anyone?

1/2 week completed, easy peasy so far!…

Spring is here…

Although it does not feel like it all the time, spring has arrived in Norway. Snow has melted away, flowers are coming up and in some cases blooming, 3 layers of clothing is not needed and sun glasses can be spotted at every outing. Now, don’t think that makes it warm. Today it is just a few degrees above freezing and a bit cold for us “new comers’, although the natives seems to be enjoying it still?

This is a photo from last weekend where we did an outing down to our local beach. There are (apparently) 4 blue flag beaches in Norway and we have two of them just down from here.

Kaelyn and Alex got very excited when we said we were going to the beach. Took some work to explain that the beach does not automatically mean swim wear… Particularly this time of year in Norway!

Even though we did not go swimming, we had a lovely outing to the beach with a picnic and collecting of shells…

And no, you will not get me to jump from the 10 meter high diving platform! And that is a promise!
