Hello everyone!

It´s very cold here in “Suomi”! The last week we have had -8 degrees, but today it was rainy and ugly weather outside. The last days were a bit better because it was only cold. Unfortunately, we had to go outside because of the horses. They of course also wanted to have food and water and they didn´t care about the weather... We also  let them go outside and took them inside again in the evening, like all the days before.

This weekend the twins also visited us. Together with Leena, we went to an indoor-playground in Kuopio where they could play. We think they really enjoyed this trip and when we drove home they both fell asleep ;)

Saturday morning, we had to keep an eye on them because Leena went to Mikkeli. A small problem was the language, because they always said something in Finnish and we didn’t understand them. However, it wasn´t a big problem for us and we tried to talk with hands and feet :D They boys did as well and we all got along very well.

In the afternoon, we had time for baking Kladdkaka, a Swedish chocolate-cake, which basically is a pure calorie-bomb. It was really tasty and everyone liked it.

And yesterday evening we finally went to an ice hockey game! It was really cool and we decided to go there again. Jukurit, the club from Mikkeli, played against Hokki. In the last second Jukurit shot a goal, but the referee decided that it wasn´t a goal. So Jukurit lost the game with 2-3 :( Hopefully they win the next game!

Today we cleaned the kitchen and it took a long time, because there are so many cupbords! However, we are champions in cleaning kitchens and now the kitchen is shining again :D

New post from us! So now the first two weeks are over and it’s just great to be here! It’s getting colder and colder, but it’s no problem for us to cope with that. We have often been driving to Virtasalmi, where the other farm is. There, we took the animals into or outside of their stable, cleaned their boxes and gave them new food and water. Thursday night, when we were in Virtasalmi, the donkeys and sheep broke free. It seemed to be a “mission impossible” to catch them again. However, twenty minutes later, two sheep and two donkeys were standing in their boxes eating their hay. Mission impossible? Not for us!

Beside this, we also visited Mikkeli, when we had free-time. There are quite a lot shops and this is a real city, not like the “cities” in the north of Sweden :D

Every Wednesday there is a market in the town with different small stalls. And what did we find? A Bavarian stall. Anywhere we go, we find German things and people! Even in the smallest town somewhere in Finland :D Furthermore, we also visited the art-museum in Mikkeli with lots of pictures and sculptures in it. Ok, it didn’t take that much time to visit the museum, because it was not as big as we thought it would be. But it was interesting! The collection was from the time between the two wars. Most of the pictures were from impressionist and neoimpressionist artists, reflecting this period especially from the Finns point of view.

Moreover, we are planning to go to an ice-hockey game in the coming weeks. The local team from Mikkeli is playing in the second league. And we thought: Wouldn’t it fit perfectly well going to an ice-hockey game, right here in Finland, where ice- hockey is the most loved sport J

Best wishes!

Hello everybody:)
It's been a while since we've been writing... However, now we have some things to tell and some pictures we can show ;) Last week we've been doing a lot. We helped on the other farm for example. The animals there need food and we cleaned their boxes. Today the two donkeys ran away and we had to catch them again... 
Another thing we've been doing, is to pick up the people from for example Mikkeli or school. 
Furthermore, we have cleaned up a little bit in the house. Basically have been doing all those things in this week and we had a lot of free time too :)
We are already looking foreward to the next days, because it's really fun here. There is a lot here we can help with and the work on the farm for example is really nice. We really enjoy this place and we plan to see more of Mikkeli next week. There seem to be interesting museums which we want to visit. Moreover, we also plan to go to an ice hockey game the next weeks :)
