after much anticipation and much planning, we've finally gotten to stockholm to start our 6-month adventure! the flight was fine, the luggage arrived with us, and the apartment is petite but lovely. everyone is starting to physically feel better--the jet lag caught all of us a bit--and overall we're adapting beautifully. rich needed about three minutes to become fully swedish (gus and sophie needed about ten)--those genes are tenacious. i've still got some work to do...
near our apartment is the southern coast of kungsholmen, which is an absolutely lovely space. sophie literally jumped right in to life here. more later!
like *literally* jumped in!

sophie later decided that she wanted to capture a duckling and make it "imprint" (her word) on her--we've had a hard time dissuading her of this idea
