Field Day in Finland
Sophia's school had their annual field day this week. They sledded and skied at Impivaara. I don't have any pictures of the skiing because I was busy helping children with their skis. Every event involving children includes sausages cooked on the fire and this was no exception. After a morning of sledding and skiing the students were given sausages (makara), doughnuts (munkki), rye bread and cheese, and oranges. Sophia's school recently sent home a paper advising parents that children need two hours of exercise a day. Climbing a hill with your sled meets that requirement.
