I also received my letter from SURS about retirement, which I need to respond to within 30 days of starting this leave. I was surprised and impressed that it arrived here at our temporary home in a reasonable amount of time -the person I had talked to at SURS said he could enter the Danish address as a temporary one for me, and I was glad to see that it worked out just as it should have.
The boys are having a terrific time at school here! They come home exhausted each afternoon and just bursting with excitement to tell us all they did and learned. On the walk home, I asked what they had learned. Anders said "we don't learn here, we just play. We only learn on Mondays" :) That is the day they have their extra Danish language session. While I don't think it's true that they only learn on Mondays, it was fun to hear that they are having so much fun.
Svea likes the mommy-and-me time she is getting here. Each morning she plays for a bit, then seeks out her milk, her dolly, and sits in my lap until it is time for a nap. At nap time, she walks up the stairs and just goes to sleep. Then we go to lunch with Jeff.
I still haven't figured out the fancy coffee pot / espresso machine here at the house, but today I was able to use the French press and made some decent coffee :)
I realized I haven't yet posted any photos of the Højskole. Here are some of them: I love all the flowers everywhere, especially the roses growing up all of the columns.
.This building below posts the 1863 date. It's very neat to see all of the very old buildings around here.
Svea thought she should go for a walk around the grounds. Someone had just gone inside that building, and she thought maybe she should as well.
This is one courtyard in the middle of the grounds. Just to the right of the photo is the residence hall, and the building behind the bench houses some rooms as well. It is very quiet and peaceful here.
