Sweden is lovely this time of year -- too bad Tiger Woods isn't there with his Swedish wife Elin and their daughter Sam, 2, and son Charlie, 14 months.

While the golfer (he placed fourth in the Masters earlier this month) stays behind in the U.S., "Elin and the kids are out there visiting with [Elin's] family in Stockholm," a family source explains to UsMagazine.com.

Meanwhile, the insider says that "nonstop construction" continues on the $3 million home in Vaxholm which Elin purchased in December. "She is definitely planning on spending a lot of time there -- they are gutting it," the source says of the private-island estate on Sweden's west coast.

The mom and former model, 30, is "working hard" to speed up renovations. "She and the kids are going to be spending most of the summer there," the source says. "Without Tiger."

"It's 100% happening," the insider says of the split. "Elin and her mom met with a lawyer before they went to Sweden."

But don't expect those proceedings to go quickly, cautions the source. "It's going to take a long time to go through. [But] she will go through with it. She is all about being a mom. She will do it slowly and carefully."

As for Tiger, TMZ reports that the golfer caught a Nickelback concert in Orlando, Fla. on Monday night, and "partied backstage" with the rock band.  He is scheduled to compete in the Quail Hollow Championship near Charlotte, NC next week.
