Earlier in the week we had some lovely friends Carina and Henrik invite us ice fishing. What an experience!
With their friends and family we all got on snow mobiles and headed along paths to an open freeway! The river. Such an exhilarating feeling zooming along the snow with a gang of head lights behind you.
Drilling holes, tiny fishing rods, scooping out the frozen ice, fika on the ice, the kids finding animal tracks and having so much fun following tracks, Rosie’s excitement when she declared she saw a fish. So much fun …
I was chatting the other day with one of the kids about how much it means to me that people go out of their way to invite our family to join their circle of friends and family. We have really been treated with so much kindness since coming here. I hope that I can be that kind and welcoming back. Moving to another country, not knowing anyone, is a crazy experience. You start with zero friends and it is a beautiful thing to be able to look back at the short time here and see the friendships made already.
