Out in the sun, almost directly after breakfast! The blossoming Cherry and Magnolia was waiting for us! We had a great day out, all family! As it should be, on our little Easter Holiday. Mirror photo, yes!
After some very hectic and intense two weeks, we needed to catch up, and just rest. So, be it. Good night!
A very nice Sunday, with Luna turning one years old! Congratulations! And thanks for the Paw Patrol towel that Mika got as a gift as well.
She made the test for applying for Higher Education today – full day testing. What we in Sweden call ‘Högskoleprovet’! Victory Number One already won – SHE MADE IT! More victories ahead … Time to turn the tide! Yay! Me so fkkn proud of her! I love you, my DRRLING!!! Celebration, we had! With balloons! HOORAY!
Had a video chat with Mika and Karin tonight from my workshop in Braås. Miss my family like crazy! Going home tomorrow evening. Day three of our butt-camp, hitting it!
Kiddie clothing swap at Renströmmen, Norrköping. This time we also got some toys! A parking house (he loves the one at his pre-school, happy to get one home too!), some wooden puzzles and an abacus. Great findings, great day!
Things happen all the time. Good thing some stuff remains as-we-can-experience-as … “STATIC”. For me, this experienced “CONSTANT” is – as you might know by now, if you’ve followed me through the years: PEACE. LOVE. HARMONY. UNDERSTANDING. Fifty years ago today, a Bed-In For Peace was taking place. Yoko Ono. John Ono Lennon. In Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Our World. In the same spirit – here we are. Mika. Nadine. Me. And my beloved Karin behind the camera. In our sofa, at Sandgatan 12B, Norrköping, Sweden, Our World. Not at all with the same magnitude of “followers”. Far from that “reach”….
Mika loves music. Mika loves singing. Mika loves dancing. At the moment, these three songs. He adds new meaning. As with Torn, where Lisa Ajax sings “…pieces”, Mika sings “…pizza”. Just. So. Lovely! And! Cute! Our parental hearts are melting. Our smiles spread as he sings for all of us! A common favourite of both Nadine and Mika is the radiant brilliance of Laleh, singing “Bara få va mig själv” (“Only To Be Myself”). Spot on! Be yourself, Mika. Remind us to be ourselves, Mika. Just. Be! Mohombi with “Hello”, now also added with a sweatshirt we found the past…
Today we were at the big clothing swap for kid’s clothing at Vittra School in Norrköping, taking place every Spring. We got some great findings. Besides clothes, a nice interactive kiddie World Atlas! Then we were at the library, and the toy store. A nice day in full Spring sun! Life”s great!
At Creative Workshop, Worker’s Museum, Norrköping. Same method as last time, different content, theme and story! Making own toys better than buying!
We made a little roundtrip to Valdemarsvik today – on demand by Mika! We took his whole wooden train set with us – following his strong will. A great little mini vacation. Thanks Hedwig for your hospitality and generosity!
