A National Holiday, a Moving Day and a Day for American Football

Monday, 6 June, 2016:

Today was . . .

Swedish Flag Day

This is a National Holiday in Sweden that some say is like our Fourth of July while other Swedes tell me that is a relatively new day in Swedish culture to celebrate a somewhat cloudy part of Swedish history.

Regardless, I liked it!


I moved into my newest apartment, hereto referred to as Icelandia III. It is a spacious, two bedroom affair that even has a balcony.

The FC Barcelona headboard makes the whole flat work!

As always, TACK SÅ MYCKET to Lotta Douhan and Aiki Parts for making my transition to a new home an easy one!

Meanwhile, back at the Flag Day celebration . . .


What says Sweden more than those two wonderful words?

I was told to head up the hill from the train station to the Upplands Väsby Hembygdsförening to see some fun doings.

Offensive Line
getting a good push!

At 4:00 p.m., we were supposed to play a U13 game vs. the Solna Chiefs but it was cancelled.

At 6:30 p.m., our U15 team practice emphasized Special Teams and preparation for this weekends 7-on-7 tournament.

Both of our U11 and U15 workouts featured positive improvements by our players.

With our American football
practices ended . . .

. . . I had to make the two
minute walk through these
woods to Icelandia III

Living this close to the practice/game field is an improvement.

All-in-all, another GREAT day in Sweden!
