A few pictures from our first few days here. More soon!
Please be praying for William & Daniel as they start school on Monday!
We are settling nicely into our home and town. We have small victories and minor setbacks on a daily basis.
Today I was excited to make chili for dinner. That is, until I realized I don’t have a can opener. So I rummaged through drawers and came upon something…
Take a look at the picture. I have never seen anything like this before. I thought it must be a can opener, but couldn’t for the life of me figure it out.
Superman to the rescue… Zack worked with it and finally figured out how to use it. My hero!
I found out later from my aunt that it is just like one my great-grandmother used to use (hers wasn’t so rusty though!).
And for those who already expressed concern, we are all current on our tetanus shots!
We are renting the second floor of a beautiful home built in 1897. It has lots of windows, beautiful floors, and way more than any expectations than we had. The landlord has been great to work with so far, and we look forward to getting to know him and his family (including two sons not much older than our boys!).
Here is a sneak peak…

And now we can officially live up to our blog title!
The last week and a half were a whirlwind, to say the least. But here’s the short version: we got permission to travel to Norway, and we are here!
We arrived late Friday evening. We were greeted by several friends and are now in our temporary apartment in Oslo. It is good to be here… and a bit surreal!
Jet lag is a killer. We slept well our first night, mostly from exhaustion I guess! But it is about 4:30 AM right now, and Zack & I are wide awake. Guess it will just take time to get adjusted!
We will write more as we get settled. For now, here are a couple of pictures from our first day here.
