Big thing this week: the kids are on ice. And that’s not a reference to they are on drugs or anything. They just love ice skating!!!! Can’t get enough of it (I know…. there were some pictures last week as well). They would probably skip school all together if they were allowed to go skating non-stop. So….. Zeb started ice hockey on Saturday and Milla figure skating. I guess we’ll only see the inside of ice-halls now for a while.
The second biggest thing this week: we got a dump load of snow again on Saturday. Big amounts and the perfect temperature so it was super sticky. Snowmen and igloos to be build!!!
As you can see it started already a bit on Friday morning:
When you think winter is over and spring is peaking around the corner, you get slapped in the face with a snowstorm:
But by the weekend it’s all back to normal and we are on skates again:
That derailleur is in the wrong spot on the bike. It just came off when I jumped on
A lot of time on the ice. Here is Zeb doing a good effort:
The result was that he had the courage to go in rougher plays:
When we had 20°C in the afternoon still. Biking home in shorts and short sleeves. Well, this morning it was 0°C !!!!! That’s how fast it goes here. From summer to winter in no time.
We managed to get them to stand next to each other for 5 seconds and not argue…. Found this while looking for summer shots.
That has been, was overshadowed by this:
Yes, a happy girl. A birthday girl. And also a girl with a broken arm. Crashed with her bike 4 days before her birthday. You could see right away something was wrong. That arm was just not straight… Plastered it within 2 hours at the hospital. And now last Friday it was time for a visit at the doctor’s. Result: surgery to pull it straight because it could take up to 2 years to let her body fix this on its own. And it might not be straight after all…. 15º does that I guess.
So all you can do is wait from 08:45 till around 15:45 (without eating or drinking – poor girl). Luckily there is free WiFi and an iPad available:
Yes, they marked the arm to be sure:
At the end everything went OK and we were all back home at 19:00, ready to have a “Kräftskiva” with the neighbors.
In his own room is the new thing. Both of the kids. Milla in her room with a closed door and now Zeb as well.
Like I say every year: Time flies !!!!! 8 Years and counting…
You skip your races to drive them to their races in the weekends:
Which is the same as I wanted to do. So hopefully we can ride it together in a few years. Here he is warming up (you have to teach them right from the beginning) with his buddy:
And then you finish like this:
Biking to and from work during the late summer is about as good as it gets. Favorite part of the year…
