On Sunday, July 29th, Suffolk County Au Pair in America host families and au pairs gathered at their Community Counselor’s beach house for some Olympic fun. The kids started by coloring some Olympic rings and creating their own flags. Games were played with host kids, au pairs and the parents. Lots of giggles were heard as they filled up buckets of water in a relay race, dressed up in silly outfits during another race, did a ring toss and other games. Time for a swim in the Long Island Sound, digging in the sand, walks on the beach and then a potluck dinner & BBQ.
Everyone learned a little more about each other. Experienced host parents chatted with new host parents. New au pairs met long term au pairs. Friendships grew between host kids. After dessert & coffee, everyone headed home a little closer then when they arrived.
