Välkommen til Sverige!

We made it to the Motherland! It is always quite a journey, but here we are. It is about 40 degrees and a little overcast, but since we went to Denver last weekend where it was 5 degrees and snowing, it makes it seem like a spring day! We stayed awake for about 24 hours so we could adjust to the time zone. Last year we had such a hard time adjusting, but today we actually managed to get out of bed at 8am. I know! Hard to believe, since we can hardly do that at home.

I have also come to realize that my Swedish is getting a little better. I can still translate a little better in my head, rather than speak the native tounge, but it is gettting better. Phrases such as 'Var är mina strumpor?' (Where are my socks?) and 'Katten är på bordet' (The cat is on the table) can really come in handy. In a pinch, I still have the 'ol standby: 'Jag dricker kaffe i köket.' (I drink coffee in the kitchen.)

It's good to be home!
