Babysitting and iPods

One huge benefit about Switzerland is the access to babysitting. Swiss Mountain Sports has been outstanding in providing great ski schools (5 kids per class max) and a high level of customer service. Of course, with three kids booked, two weeks a year or more, the Neils are now known. Even better, the ski instructors also double as babysitters, so David and I can actually have a dinner on our own occasionally. (We have had a hard time finding babysitters in Sweden, and after Benjamin scared away a couple of new ones, we have had to rely on our old faithful team - Leonor, Pernilla and Carl - who are now growing up and have a real job, a busy university life and military service, respectively).

Allison has now come three times (!) - a miracle when more than once seems to be more than most can handle. Of course, the boys got to listen to their iPods to help them fall asleep - a brilliant strategy, and one which gave us these wonderful photos!

I just hope they have some hearing left when they reach adulthood!
