Being sick in the summer

It's been awful this past week because my son came down with a cold and at the same time we're having a heat wave!  I haven't been able to take him swimming or the beach.  I hate it when he gets sick in the summer!  He probably caught it from the day camp I put him in when I was working temporarily.  Every time I send him to day camp, he always seems to get something.  Has anyone else's kids been sick?

Count us in with the sick crowd.  Since Thursday night, we've been battling a stomach bug.  Prior to that, it was sinus issues (probably due to the humidity).  Being sick stinks.  :smileysad:

Ugh to being sick in the summer! We had a week of a stomach bug back in June.

I hope things turn around soon in the health department so you can enjoy the end of the summer!

That is the worst! I know when I send my kids somewhere unfamiliar they always come down with something. Too bad it happened right at the end of the summer. We've been good this summer but I'm sure once they are back in school they'll bring something home.

Welcome to the board, Shaun!  How old are your kids?
