On my way to the May 17th comity meeting at the girls’ school. May 17th is Norway’s constitution day, and it is celebrated big! There is an official parade downtown every year that the girls partake in since their school is an inner city school. but in the afternoon, there is a lot of activities happening in their schoolyard - games, lotteries, bake sale, and other food, speeches and entertainment from a stage. And each year, someone has to make sure all this happens, plan for it and buy in for it and delegate others to help with getting the activities going on the day itself. It is the parents of third and sixth grade that has this responsibility each year, and a few of those parents again that is in the comity that decided and rules over it all! This year, I am in charge of food and kitchen and the staff that will sell and serve it all, together with one other mom. Luckily, one of Sara’s friends that I know pretty well and get along with great.
And I have new shoes on!

Day 94/366: Refusing to acknowledge the snow!
The cold weather continues, and it has even been snowing a bit. not unusual for April - it has been known to snow even on my Birthday the 3oth of April several years. Other times, it has been summer temperatures, Typical April! I refuse to dig my winter boots out again though!
