The 17th of May









...is an ordinary day for most of the world, and the National Constitution Day for a tiny permille. 

The highlight was the 6th graders beautiful parade with flags from 42 different nations that's represented on one school. In a tiny town like ours I think it's amazing with pupils from so many countries.

My children will say the highlight was to eat as much ice cream and candy floss as they could. And they could eat a lot.

P.S: still a few spots of snow in the garden. But I think it's gone by I wake up tomorrow.

Enjoy your week:)

Gratulerer med dagen.

It looks like it was a lot more organised over your way!

We had fun here though, and amazing weather too.

Så skjønne bunadjenter, nydelige bilder! For et fantastisk vær det ble, sjelden bunaden blir i overkant varm. Vi hadde26 grader, så etter det obligatoriske ble det en fantastisk dag i hagen med adskillig lettere klær! Og masse is:-)
