At last! It is no longer winter, no longer spring with cold wind, it is summer, and the children could have a bath outside playing with the garden hose. The spring flowers: Tussilago farfara, Hepatica nobilis and Anemone nemorosa are long gone, and yesterday my son had picked summer flowers for my table.
In a couple of weeks school will end for the summer, and many people will go travelling inside or outside Norway for their holidays. Most people have 3 weeks leave from work, while the school vacation is 8th weeks. My youngest child has been waiting and longing to go to school since her older sibling started school a couple of years ago. After 6 months she stopped asking "am I starting today?" every morning, but this week she finally had a day at the school visiting together with some of her friends from kindergarten.
