Last Friday I had a very excited 5 year old when I picked him up from school.
Tae had been chosen to be the first child in his class to bring home the class Teddy!!
He had told the teacher he was going to a cabin for the weekend and as it sounded exciting, she thought it would be fun for him to be chosen first. From next week, a name will be pulled out of a bucket to decide who has Teddy for the weekend)
Erm, fun for Tae - pressure for this Mamma;)
It is a very Norwegian thing. In Grade One each class has a teddy. Each week a different pupil takes him home for the weekend and completes a journal entry in Teddy's book with pictures or photos about what they had been up to. I fondly remember doing this with Tim. The class Teddy usually does the rounds repeatedly throughtout Grade One and Two.
So, I picked Tae and Teddy up and we headed straight to our friends cabin in Hardanger for the weekend!
So here is our weekend as written in Teddy's Book!!
This weekend I have been home with Tae. This was my first visit home with somone and I was very excited. Tae was very excited too! Straight from school Tae went on a weekend trip to Hardanger!
First, we drove for a long time, we then took a ferry, drove some more before finally taking a little boat to a small island where we would be staying.
On Saturday we ate breakfast on the terrace. Afterwards I went on a fishing trip with Tae, his big brother Tim caught two fish.
That evening we had a bbq with two small whole lambs, they tasted very good.
On Sunday we went on a walk in the woods, we talked with the cows and drove a little tractor.
After a delicious lunch we had to travel back to Tae's home.
Everything was fun!!
I have been given a new red bag to travel in when I visit everyone else:)
Big thanks to Tim for writing the original text and taking some of the photos for me because:
1) I have been sick
2) My written Norwegian is rubbish.
Tim's Original Text:
Fredag 28. – Søndag 31. August
Denne helgen har jeg vært hjem med Tae, det var min første gang på besøk hos noen og jeg var veldig spendt. Tae var veldig spendt også. Rett fra skolen tok Tae på en helgetur i Hardanger! Først måtte vi kjøre veldig langt, da tok vi en ferge, kjørte litt mer og tilslutt tok vi en liten båt til en øy som vi skulle være på.
På Lørdag spiste vi frokost på terassen . Etterpå så gikk jeg på fiske tur med Tae og storebroren Tim, han fanget to fisk. På kvelds tiden grillet vi to små lam, det smakte godt. På søndag gikk vi på tur i skogen, snakket med kuene og kjørte med en liten traktor. Etter en deilig lunsj måtte vi reise hjem. Alt var veldig gøy! Jeg har fått en ny rød sekk til å reise med til alle!
