Camping, rhubarb and a broken leg

 The camping king.
Climbing as high as the mother can take and getting down when she starts tearing her hair out.
Strokkur sprouts water every few minutes. What I loved more was that When we sat down on a bench Sturla made a garden in the sand with pebbles and sand.
 Happy brothers
Rocks are made for climbing.
 Eiki is my best friend he says.
 The beach and the gate to the center of the earth in the background.
The water is freezing, but who cares they dive in anyway and dance to the clatter of their teeth.
We were driving back from our camping trip and decided to stop at one of our favorite spots. There was wind all around but magically that spot on the beach was calm. White sand beaches are rare in Iceland.

The rhubarb testing and the bowl of sugar. He did not really like it but tasted it several times anyway to please his mother
 The broken leg and the boy attached to it. He did so well at the hospital..answered any question asked some were asked multiple times from different doctors and nurses. What is your name, do you have a best friend how old are you and on and on and on...,so patient with the social niceties of the world...aimed to calm him.
And yup we are getting on that plane to France tomorrow broken leg and all.

  5. I loved this post. I loved the scenery of a place I'll probably never get to visit :( I loved the shots of the kids, and I loved the story behind it. You have a wonderful gift for telling a good story.
