A First Grader

4 Sep 2017 – Happy Bday May

Fri: Selamat Hari Raya Haji to those celebrating and to all, enjoy the long weekend. TGIF with a feeling like the first day of Fall is here in OSL and safe journeys to Bjørn.

5mins walk to Ullevål Skole – built in 1926, downloaded B/Wpix on the right is from the 1930s. This neighbourhood’s elementary school is where #6 youngest grandchild, a 1stGrader now. Seems like yesterday when I took walks with him in a stroller or a baby-carrier!

A young enthusiastic teacher and a new principle for #6 to start school. Mette told me that the school was green inn colour 60yrs ago and that there were not so many bikes then and they had to take bike-tests. Only kids 12yrs&above who passed their tests were allowed to bike to school. Would not hurt to have those tests back…

Sat: busy day starting with dropping #6 off at AstrupFearnleyMuseum Children’s Art Club RASMUS with their monthly program where they explore different artworks – today is Chinese Summer.

A brief walk around some exhibits and lunched@VingenBar, NOK230 S$40 for duck salad&soda, no joke!

Lovely day to be strolling about AkerBrygge&Tjuvholmen; nice to see ppl taking advantage of the weather and the weekend.

Tjuvtittne The Sneak Peak – lookout tower (54m high) with a glass elevator and on a beautiful day like today, it is worth NOK20 S$3.50pp to have a view of the city, OSL fjord, boats and hills from a whole new angle.

Being part of #6 early bday present, he was as keen as I was to try this glass elevator 🙂

Sun: The American Lutheran Congregation is the largest English-speaking church in OSL. Sunday-school here so that #6 can have a dialog communicating in English as well as getting some American culture in a safe environment.

Despicable Me3***@Colosseum, another early bday present, NOK118 S$20/child and NOK148 S$25/adult+drinks and popcorn! – far from the cost of my senior movie ticket in SIN!! Visited Ellen at Nesøya who will be 93 next month, amazing lady who can still discuss about Ibsen’s plays with me.


Thus ends the visit of MooseEgil with #6 for this weekend and hopefully there will be plenty to tell at school tomorrow! MooseEgil is a 1stGrade class project where it gets to go home with a different student every Fri and the students share their activities with the class on Mon. Good idea and fun way to share.Good Indian-takeout dinner from Diamond Indian Cuisine***NOK485 S$85 for 2adults+1child. O likes mild curry.

Best wishes to an awesome XC season to #s1&2 (705-4), CoachHall and the whole IrmoHigh XC-Team – pix credits to Linn.

Happy Labour Weekend from Norway to all celebrating – fire up the grills, let the games begin (Go Gators), enjoy and be safe. Unusual clouds and sky over the ski-jump.
