DaddyCast #201 - Summer Safety

The DaddyCast Episode 201 A Podcast for Parenting from the Hip! Listner and Supporter Andy sent along some information regarding "Shallow Water Blackout"- a serious but fairly unknown issue with swimmers, divers and techniques used for staying under water longer. To read it for yourself, check out the document I review on the show at http://www.nzunderwater.org.nz/pdf/me.swblackout.pdf. The Backyard Campout - we had to wait a week for better (ie more comfortable) weather but we setup our tent and slept in the wild of the backyard. It was a lot of fun and I feel we will be doing it again soon (perhaps in the Fall when this crazy heat dies down a bit). Camp and dogs eating homework - of course homework doesn't belong in Summer stories but somehow we pulled it off anyway!!
