Here’s something that would be fun to have a chance to try out someday soon. Certainly it would be great exercise, unless you are the passenger! Here is the link to the blog with some photos.  Kick-sleds are still used in Sweden in the rural areas of the country. If memory serves me, I think there may be an old one in the basement of the New Sweden museum, but it will be spring until the museum is open again to check it out!

    I’ve never seen a kick-sled, other than in photographs, but I understand they can be pulled by dogs as well.

    I am a relative of the Espling Family. My mother is Greta Espling Cote, daughter of Judith. I remember going to Christmas here and playing around the house and outer building which was the bathroom 2 holes. I put my name in one of the mustache cups in the dinning room I was about 10 at the time and swore that I would marry a man with a mustache. And I did. I didn’t get the cup but I got another one from the house. I will give it back to the house (museum now). My aunt Lynn Espling Silcox inherited a lot of the estate and she was nice enough to let me have a piece of our history. I will always treasure it.

    Is there no one to take over the posting and internet. I wanted to get updates since I have a lot of family still in Nothern Maine and New Hampshire. But we are all still swedes!!
