After set up and spaghetti lunch, we took a long hike around the lake and up in the hills. The kids did lots of sledding on the snowy hills, climbed rocks, bounced on the springy marsh moss and enjoyed some great views. Back at the hytte we played games, went fishing, carved whistles and filled cups with pollywogs. After taco dinner it began raining, so we lit a fire inside and roasted marshmallows in the fireplace. The boys went fishing again while the girls did Zoomba in the rain. A few more games and snacks and singing a few songs while I played guitar, then off to bed.
7 a.m. the next morning we were at it again. Great breakfast, running around outside, their teacher organized a team photo shooting hunt, and then we cleaned and packed and headed back to the school.
I haven't been this tired in a long time! It was a very nice trip, Anna was very pleased.
