Searched around some old photos and found this gem from 10. Sept 2006. So cute!

I had such good plans about blogging regularly this time. Even when I went back to work after the vacation. But it’s really hard sometimes to find time, especially when I also want to do some scrapbooking πŸ˜‰ So this past week / weekend I’ve been scrapping my heart out – and it’s been great! But on this last night of August 2010 I just wanted to make a little post. Just to say hay, just to tell I’m still here living my life both online and inline..

We are getting back into the everyday life, both kiddo and I. Starting to get used to the early mornings and the scheduling to make sure we manage to do it all… So far it’s been good, even though it’s been a challenge to remember everything some days.

I think I’m ready for September now. It’s fall around here anyway. The nights are starting to get darker and the weather is getting colder. I’m not sure I like it. But I will embrace it and enjoy the colors.

Tomorrow I’ll bring my camera along in the car. I might run into something beautiful that needs my attention and snapping.

I don’t think I’ve mention this before, but MT have started reading books. Not only cartoons, but real books. Books written for children, off course, but anyway books. Last week I was a bit late coming up to sing for him at bedtime, so he found a book I bought him this summer and started reading in it (I’ve been trying all summer to get him interested, lol..). When I finally got up he asked if he please could read a little bit more after I said good night. It’s so exciting, he told me. I was excited too, I spent my childhood borrowed in books and I love reading! So I told him, yes, you might read two more pages – and then you have to sleep. Yay! I’m so proud of him and LOVE the way they are teaching the love of reading at school!

O.k. so this has been a totally random post, so I might as well add a photo from a previous august day (26th 2005). Originally I had someΒ  plan of a “5 years ago post”, but I never got around to it. It’s the same this year anyway; time to harvest at the farm – if only the rain could stop! The oats are beautiful at close op πŸ˜€

See you around!

    I am looking forward to fall’s color but not the gray skies!
    Am wondering–do Norwegian children learn to read in both Norwegian and English (or another language)? You do so well with your English!
    LOVE both of your photos–your son has the most beautiful complexion and the oats are gorgeous!
    Blessings from the Pacific NW,

    Aimee, I love the clear blue sky fall days too. They are the best πŸ™‚

    My kid started with English last year in 1. grade, so yes they start early on. Most Norwegians understand English pretty well, even if some of have trouble speaking it out loud…. I started to learn English in 4th grade, but it took me some time to get the hang of it. I figured if I ever was going to read and understand all the English lit. when studying theology I had to take some time to refresh and relearn – so I started to read books (of all kinds) in their original language (= English) and it helped me broaden my vocabulary as well as refreshing some grammar. Since then I’ve also started blogging and read/listen to a lot of English online every day. It’s still my second language, though, and sometimes I can’t find the words to tell the story like I want to and then I wish I could write it in Norwegian. But then you wouldn’t understand and I love meeting and getting to know people all over the world πŸ™‚ So I’m sticking to English around here, but just ask and I will learn you a few words of Norwegian πŸ˜‰

    Have a blessed weekend and fall time!

    I think that is wonderful–to learn early 2 languages (or more)! Wish we did that here:) I know a little of several languages but would like to be more proficient in them.
    I am thankful that you do use English on your blog because my Norwegian is limited to a very few words–but anytime you feel the urge to teach us a little, I would be happy to try to learn!
    And you are right–the weatherman just announced that, although the calendar doesn’t say fall yet, we are definitely weather-wise in fall!!
