We are a family with four boys, 3, 5, 7 and 8 years old. We have several different kind of animals - horses, sled dogs, cats, hens, pigs, ducks, turkeys, 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, build things, etc.
We like to make our own bread in our kitchen, hunt moose to get meat and pick berries ourself instead of buying everything at the supermarket.
All the month looks very different here, depends on what time of the year it is.
Summer - Lakes, midnight sun, fishing, train horses, play with the children, cut grass, walk with dogs, etc.
Autumn - Pick berries and mushrooms, enjoy the colours of the forest, begin to train the dogs after the summer rest, etc.
Winter - Drive sled dogs, northern light, enjoy the snow, skiing, ice fishing, drive snow mobile, shovel snow, etc.
Spring - Appreciate the longer days with the daylight, chop the wood and prepare it for the next winter, train dogs, etc.
