Teres’s children had been given time off school to join us at the cabin, to learn more about nature and improve their English. Before driving back to the cabin I visited the Dollar Store to buy a variety of items with which the boys had to build boats to sail across the lake.
In addition to the items I purchased they could also use any natural resources.
Seb and Emma where keen to try out my hammock
Emma spent more time trying to fall out of the hammock with much success I might add!!!
Ingvar had purchased a new axe shaft to replace one I had split
so we went to Anki and Ingvar’s cabin to fit it and to have some lunch
While splitting logs my chopping block had split in half and so Ingvar cut me a new one…..the easy way!!
Having spent some time teaching Seb how to use a firesteel he spent a lot of time trying to make fire and I was impressed at his determination to achieve fire…..and he did.
In the evening the boys put their boats on the lake
and once the wind caught the sails we watched them race across the lake.
We had the perfect end to the evening with a nice display of the Northern Lights at about 10pm (unfortunately my picture isn’t as good as those of Tricia)
