With Papa Andy and Papa Scott at Crescent Island (walking with the animals) in Hells Gate National Park and hiking the Gorge in Hells Gate on another day.
I started swim lessons at the end of October with about 40 kids! Yes, I am crazy! I teach 2 to 6 year old children from 9 - 12 Sat. morning, a "Baby and Me" class of babies under 2 (and their Moms) Sunday morning from 9 -10 am, and Monday afternoon 2 to 6 year old children from 3-5 pm. It certainly makes for less time on the weekends, but it has been fun. About half of the children are from Hannah's pre-school and the other half from the Diplomatic community.
The kids were sick with runny noses for about 2 months. Is this seriously what happens when kids start pre-school? Unfortunately we had a scare with Chase as he ended up having a Croup cough one morning and then a febrile seizure not but a few hours later that afternoon. We are not really sure if that is what it was, but the doctors say most likely. We had to go to the Children's Hospital and get him admitted but a few hours later he was back to normal. Obviously he is doing fine now, but it certainly wasn't fun and something I hope to not have to go through again.
