Coaching Debut

The boys got a chance to coach a third and fourth grade flag football team today and loved it. Dylan, Sam and Mick did a fantastic job teaching the team some plays, managing the clock and making sure everyone got to play. They almost won too, bringing the team back for a 6-20 deficit and tying up it up with a minute left to place but losing on a long touchdown run. I was proud of how they handled the team and made sure the kids had fun. They may try to get their own team this fall.

End Zone Bound

Wet and nasty day. Perfect football weather.

Vikings 1-0

Both boys scored in a relatively comfortable win against the Saints. It was a re-match of last years final that the Viking won. We we lead the whole game but got a little sloppy at the end to win 26-19. The Vikings will be competitive again this year. Lots of talent on the team.

City Hall Selfie

Had a nice tour of Stockholm city hall, the place where the Nobel Dinner is held every December. Walked across the bridge to Gamla Stan to see the national cathedral and do a little shopping. Back at the apartment for lunch then another trip out to see stuff in a bit. We are keeping busy.

Streets of Gamla Stan

The vasa museum was fun this morning. We explored that part of town after that then all took naps. Dylan found us a great Austrian restaurant in a remote corner of one of the islands that comprise Stockholm. Best schnitzel and goulash sine Vienna a couple years ago.

Good Night

Had a nice day getting to know the town a little, rested and went back out for dinner at Gorms pizza. Very good dinner and a nice walk back to the apartment. Time for 9 hours of sleep and a bunch of sightseeing tomorrow.


We are on the top floor or of this building. That window with the pull above it is one of the bedrooms. It's a nice place, from nay but nice.

Not Taking a Nap

Powering through the jet lag and learning a little about Copenhagen.

Guarding a friend

The boys lost to their Hayfield high school friends and rivals tonight by 1. It was a hard fought game with a big crowd from both schools. This is Dylan guarding his buddy Bryson down low.
