Dad says: Annika is visiting her mom for a couple of weeks. I don’t know what to do with myself. Well, actually I do, but the house is less interesting and fun while she’s away.
Annika just became a “Shark” in swimming class. That means she can swim without assistance. It makes me feel a little less and a little more nervous . Being a parent is interesting. We want to arm our kids with skills that keep them safe, like swimming and karate, but we worry about what those skills could lead to. What if she decides she likes deep-sea swimming or cage fighting? All we can do is do our best and hope they make wise choices.
We’ll be making our trip to the Olympic Peninsula in couple of weeks. We’ll be camping, hiking, biking, swimming, boating and enjoying the cool air and water of the Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
