We are a family with four boys, the oldest one is 6 years old. We have several different kind of animals - horses, sled dogs, cats, hens, pigs etc. We live in the middle of the forest, 34 kilometers from a small town. We spend a lot of time outside, training the animals, fishing, walking in the forest, picking berries, fix things at the farm etc.
We like to make our own bread in our kitchen, hunt moose in the forest to get meat and pick berries in the forest instead of buying everything at the supermarket.
All the month look very different here depends on what time of the year it is.
