Fun Fact: The Olympic symbol consists of five interlaced rings of equal dimensions, used alone, in one or in five different colors, which are, from left to right, blue, yellow, black, green and red. The Olympic symbol (the Olympic rings) expresses the activity of the Olympic Movement and represents the union of the five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games.

APIA HF Olympics 024

APIA HF Olympics 025On 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. 

APIA HF Olympics 027Everyone 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.
