Scouting rocks!

I have to admit I love scouting!
This weekend we went to this charming little place in the woods.

We chose to stay in tents and I slept out.
Can't help loving it!
We tried out some orienteering in the area, and I'm amazed what 8-9 year olds can do! They found all the control sites in the middle of nowhere!
Knots and knobs were tested and some pioneering done. 
For late dinner we ate tacos made in the wilderness, and we ended the Saturday with a campfire.

Independence day celebrated

Lots of rain, lots of marching bands and music, lots of kids and grown ups, lots of ice cream and candies and lots of fun!

That is how we celebrated the Norwegian Independence Day :)

Take a closer look!

There are lots of different creatures living in the water. I was surprised to see all these "friends" of mine now already - the water is partly covered with ice still, and the water is pretty cold.
Here are some of what we found.

Not in the water, but very close by ;-)
