We are off to backpack the wild wilderness of Norway with Josh and Kolie. We might die. If you don’t hear from us in the next week, somebody please break into our apartment and rescue Skittles :)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Chris in Kirkenes

Chris’ report when he got back from Kirkenes:

“Ugh. It was death by powerpoint. Incredibly boring.”

Pretty much lots of long, looong meetings.

He did, however, ALMOST make it into Russia!

(Kirkenes is the border town between Norway and Russia. Yeah…Norway touches Russia a tiny, tiny bit way up north. The way Scandinavia divvied up their land between countries is very strange…)

Привет России!
 Hello Russia!
(Across the water)

 

They visited an Air Force base where they got to do hardcore stuff like see portable surface-to-air missile launchers and sit inside F-16 jets.

And lastly, they got to tour Norway’s longest tuft hut…
Every town has it’s claim to fame right?

Finish with chorus of singing angels.

 

And you guys wonder what I do without a job…

Update: This Week

Chis is in Kirkenes, Norway this week for a job training thing. No…I’m not a bad wife for not knowing why he goes where he goes. Even he doesn’t know this time around. We thought he’d figure it out when he got there, but it’s now day 2 and he still doesn’t know why he got sent up there. Gotta love the government ;)

A) Stavanger  B) Kirkenes 

In other news… it seems like my body always saves its sick days until Chris goes out of town. This week is no exception :( I have one of those sore throats that swells your glands and makes your whole neck tender front to back. Definitely not the best week to get sick…but at least Chris didn’t have to sit through the marathon of chick flicks I’ve been plowing through!

We hope you all are having a great week!
