Sweden in some sense has been a whirlwind for me. So much has happened in 5 months. We have moved more than three times, traveled up north (9 hrs one way) twice, seen beautiful days and not so beautiful days! In Hawaii we were beach people, like we went to the beach more than once a week. Now we are living in a winter land where it has been -10c for the last couple of days…. freezing for these beach going people. Le’i three days ago finally said mom I really want to go back to Hawaii its to cold. That’s not bad since we have had winter since late October. Today our heating went out…… you can only laugh. As I write I am sitting with my uggs, scarf, and a lot of layering. But I swear that s what makes living so fun. We are bundled up dogs and all and watching Cake Boss. Le’i has now asked for every cake they have made on the show for his birthday. Mr. and I just laugh. It just a bit we are going to help our neighbors in their barn. They are adding new stable for the horse.
Ok so horses….. my dream! When I was little I think I asked for a horse every year for my birthday till I was 16. No really! Of course I knew I was never going to get one. We were poor and my parents had four children. You do the math! Anyway since being in Sweden horse are all around me. I love it! Plus our neighbors are so kind and let me ride. God is good. He always has a way of showing His children that He loves us. Here are some images of us up north with Stefan’s aunt horses. These are Icelandic horse, which seem to be very popular here in Sweden. You ride them completely different, needless to say I have learned the hard way.
