No Mountain too High

Inara loves the ipod, but there might be one thing that rivals this love: Climbing. Everything. All the time. Often her adventures are prefaced by a matter of fact statement of "klättra" (climb).
One of her favorite spots for the last week has been the pantry. She climbs a chair, takes everything out of the cupboard and then climbs in.

She never sits still for more than a few seconds, but why should she? Use your energy while you have it, I say. None of that left for her poor, old parents. 

As a bonus, she's has been exceedingly polite as of late. She says "tack, tack" (thanks, thanks) 50 to 100 times a day. She thanks us for holding the door, giving her things she wants, helping her and even says thank you when she gives us something. Although we have not trained her to do this, I was beaming after she thanked the swim teacher at the end of class. 

I've been meaning to post her preschool picture for a while, but haven't really been in the mood to blog lately. Here it is finally:
Otherwise everything's well with us. The last few weeks have mostly consisted of seeing lots of people and starting to get ready for Christmas. I had my second interview yesterday and it might take about a month before they get back to me, so I'm probably just going to try not to think about it too much until I know. 


  1. Hur tänkte naturen när barnen har supermycket energi och föräldrarna ligger på minus hela tiden ? ;)

    Tack snälla! Yes jag jobbade som au pair i Seattle och George har också bott där i några omgångar (fast inte när jag bodde där för då bodde han i San Diego).
    Var bor ni nu?

  2. Det kan man undra! Vi bor pa Gotland dar jag ar uppvuxen. Hur trivdes du i Seattle?
