Easter here involves a lot more days off than it does at home. The boys were home from school for a five day weekend -Thursday through Monday- and the stores were closed all but Saturday. So it took a bit of planning for us! We don't usually have to worry about having all the groceries for all of our meals for several days at a time, since generally we eat at the folk school for lunch and dinner, and just have to have things for the boys to take to school and for us to have for breakfast. But the folk school was also closed during that time, so all of us were at home for five days, eating three meals a day plus what seemed like endless snacks. (and endless dishes!)
Along with a five-day weekend comes a plethora of pictures for this post! Add to that the fact that Jeff's computer screen got cracked so he has been using mine for some of his work, and all of the kids home, and Svea learning how to get out of the crib and therefore deciding she didn't need to nap...means I'm at least two weekends behind on my writing. So we've got lots of pictures here, and a general summary of the last little while.
Svea is proving to be a master of mixing prints. And she's at an age now where she wants to choose her own clothes most days. Occasionally we can persuade her into something, but often she will say "no yike it skirt" or whatever if you give her something different from what she's picked out. I love this outfit: purple hello kitty sweater tights, blue polka dot shoes, pink polka dot socks (which you can't see in this angle), her tan and white polka dot coat, and the pink hat with silver dots. The great thing is, it totally works!
Torben has been enjoying the dress up box as well -though much of this came from Jeff's closet instead. Here, they were both "going to work" -I'm not sure where they work, but it looks like a fun place!
Well, I think I have caught up with the two weekends that encompassed our Easter. It's a bit short, considering, but I got distracted with living and forgot to write about living. It happens. We have less than 100 days left of our trip, and so many exciting things we want to pack into that time; and so many visitors to expect. It's going to be a quick spring!
