Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.

Ungene har vinterferie denne uka. Men pga mye dårlig vær siden fredag har vi ikke vært mye utendørs... Så i dag begynte vi å bli litt brakke syke her og bare måtte komme oss ut en tur. Vinden blåste godt, men temperaturen lå rundt 5 c, så det var ikke kald :) Sola titta fram etter en stund og forsvant ikke bak skyene igjen før vi skulle gå inn igjen :)
The kids have their winter break from school this week. But due to really bad weather since friday we haven't been much outdoors... So today we started to get a bit cabin fever here and just had to get out. The wind was blowing hard, but the temperatures was up around 5 C, so it was not cold :) The sun even came out after a little while and stayed with us until we headed in again :)
Guttene er ikke de som syns skigåing er det morsomste de gjør, men Endre hadde et "aha" øyeblikk da han endelig klarte å komme seg opp selv (de fleste gangene) etter å ha falt. Så han syns skigåing er ganske morsomt nå :) Men han prøver så hardt å gå like fort som søsknene sine så derfor faller han.
The boys are not the biggest fan of skiing, but Endre had a "aha" moments when he finally managed to get up by himself (most of the times) after falling. So he thinks skiing is quite fun now :) But he so tries to go with the same speed as his siblings and therefore he falls.
Eirin er den som liker at det går fort. Hun gikk opp og ned bakken gang på gang og falt kun et par ganger.
Eirin is the one who loves when it goes fast. She went up and down the hill so many times and only fell once or twice.
Det var godt å endelig komme seg ut, og jeg håper virkelig at været kan holde seg som dette noen dager til. Værvarslet for helga melder mer snø, noe jeg ikke vil ha! Lengter etter våren nå...
It was great to get outdoors again, and I really hope the weather will be like this a few more days. The forecast for the weekend is more snow, which I don't want! I'm loonging for spring now...
