Working in Jakobstad

by Going Slowly

We spent most of the day distractedly working on journals and programming projects. It's a bit difficult to focus when you have a hilarious, heart-breakingly adorable child speaking cute, unintelligible (to us, anyway) Swedish at you, and vying for attention by leaping up on the couch where you're sitting for a snuggle.

Talking about life, literature, and electronics with his sweet parents doesn't help with forward progress much either. To be clear, none of this is a complaint, it was a thoroughly enjoyable and busy day!

Mia & Edvin

This guy (their 4 month old son, Edvin) had a jam-packed day too. Finger chewing, eating, sleeping, and lots of testing out new sound effects:


Once we had made some progress on our entries (at one point, Matias looked over at us and declared that we were a "pair of geeks", sitting in front of our laptops, fervently typing away), we gathered around the dinner table for a simple meal of meat and potato soup, traditional Finnish fare.

Once we'd eaten our fill, and everyone dispersed for the night, we retired to our "guest-house". We felt a bit like our vagabonding friends, Mike and Katherine. It's fun to have a taste of caravan living!

Happened to watch this journal entry today and saw how much Edvin has grown since you guys visited us! Here's an old entry from Mias blog with a picture: http://miajohanna.blogspot.com/2011/03/1-ar.html

Wow, thank you for sending that link, Matias. Edvin sure is getting big! Please give Mia and the boys a big hug from us. :-)
