Today we got a tour of the classroom building at the højskole. It was just remodeled about two years ago, from an old barn. They kept all of the silos and other parts of the barn intact, so it's really an interesting piece of architecture.
We sat here and had a hot chocolate after picking the boys up from school. They thought that was pretty awesome, and asked when we can do it again.
We also saw the graphic and industrial design rooms, the music studios, and the art glass and pottery room. What a creative space! We did not go into the classrooms upstairs where journalism and those types of classes meet, because the students were having class in those rooms at the time.
There is a large mural of Grundvig on the wall leading upstairs, as a reminder.
Jeff and I also took a walk to the grocery store with Svea in the afternoon, and decided to stop at the little food stand outside for a snack. Jeff was intending on getting a hot dog, but instead we settled on the 40Kr plate of pommes frites. Svea was impressed with them as well.
We woke this morning to a gorgeous sun rise that Torben said made it look like the trees were almost on fire. Everything seemed lit from within.
Last night the højskole students had a trip to the planetarium, and Jeff went along with them. Though in general stars aren't his thing, he said it was really interesting, especially the talk that the people gave. The boys thought it would be fun to go to the planetarium sometime -I told them maybe we will take the train to Chicago with them and go to the Adler when they're a bit bigger.
I worked on my knitting while he was gone, after the kids went to sleep. I think I got the straight lines figured out now -thanks to YouTube.
I'm not sure how I will finish off the scarf for Svea...it will definitely need to be colour-blocked, because I don't have all that much orange yarn! That is one of the challenges of buying your materials from the recycle shop, I guess. I probably used about half of it to get this far, so maybe I will change to a different colour and save the rest of the orange for the opposite end.
