National Day!

Today is National Day here in Greenland! There are speeches, singing, picnics, kayaking, football games (soccer) and lots more. The whole town comes out to celebrate, just being a Greenlander. :) 

This was our first year to actually get out and enjoy it. The past ones we were in Sisimiut and it rained every time. We were told last year in Sisimiut that it has rained there every National Day for the past 10 years!  We went to the museum and looked around and then went to the Shulls house for hot dogs. It was a nice day.

We went out to watch them do some kayaking tricks. To me, kayaking is really neat. We took some video of them doing some of their tricks. :) I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Eryn had the best seat in the house.






This little guy has "training wheels" See the blue floats?

One of the kayakers doing the tricks was a woman. :)


Enjoying the show

    1. Sorry about the video, it works on my computer. But it may be because you are in Japan. :) We are so glad to hear that you and the little one are doing great. We have been praying for you! Oh, and I think it's neat that Nahum was born on the 7th, that's my birthday as well. :)
