Help me decipher this handwritten Norwegian postcard from an ancestor

My dad found this postcard that was sent in 1910 from my great-great-grandmother to her son and his wife. I've taken a stab at translating it from Norwegian to English using Google Translate, but I've only been able to figure out a few words due to the handwriting. There might also be some characters that I'm not familiar with. Can anyone decipher more of it? [more inside]

How do you translate this into Latin?

I'm working on a logo for my school's student government. How do you translate "to improve student life" into Latin? How would you symbolically represent the executive branch if the judicial was a gavel and the legislative was a quill?
