Beautiful Family

I was picked up by Ulla’s brother Gunnar this morning at 6:45. He took me back to his family’s house where I felt comfortable and at ease. I took a 2 hour nap on his daughter Johanna’s bed which she has graciously given to me during my stay. I had such a peaceful sleep and woke up feeling thankful.
This whole day has been fun like summer camp, I have made such a beautiful connection with this family, especially the two girls Johanna and Juhlia who are about my age. We laugh and run around, take bike rides,explore, play games,talk, sunbathe and cook. This family is incredibly good in the kitchen, we ate excellent, excellent pasta with a salmon cream sauce and thyme which Yvonne (their mom, Gunnar's wife) last night and Juhlia made a Rhubarb Raspberry pie.
I find these girls to be so beautiful and special with their kindness and warmth. Their whole family is currently working in situations which educate and help either children or the elderly. Us girls stayed up until 1:30 in the morning having tea and watching a movie…It was still light out when I went to bed.
