We had a fun weekend, though we stayed close to home because we are all getting over colds. Svea's seems to be hanging on longest, now, and she looks pretty miserable. Everyone else is mostly on the mend.
For his birthday, Torben got a kit to make this foamcore dumptruck. He and Jeff built it together, and he is so excited about it!
The weather this weekend was funny. Sunday there was rain, snow, hail, sleet, and sunshine. I sent the boys outside in the rain for a while, with their warm suits, because they were going a bit stir crazy in the house. They had a blast. They filled up some of the balloons they'd found after the barrel-breaking with water and took them outside too. Then it started snowing huge puffy flakes on them. They had so much fun! Their warm suits are such a genius invention! I am pretty sure that the one Anders has will fit Torben next year, and we're going to look into finding one for Anders for next year at the recycle shop before we go home. There's so much of the fall-spring season where they could wear them to play outside back at home. We already got one for Svea for next year. We were debating about it at the shop, and she saw it and talked about how pretty it was, and when we asked if she wanted it, she said she did. It was a good price.
I finished reading another book, "Confessions of a Shopaholic" by Sophie Kinsella. They are quite funny. It's the third or fourth I've read of hers. I really am liking all the reading time I have here! And I'm grateful for interlibrary loan, because these libraries all have small-ish English sections, but when I can order them from different places, there's quite a good selection!
