Sick little boy

Our little Aidan is a sick boy. On Sunday, he developed a fever and it stayed with him till Tuesday late afternoon. It stayed around 38.5C until Tuesday when it slowly went down and then finally broke. Plus, he'd been having diarrhea for a few days, up until yesterday. Yesterday he was so cranky, nothing made him happy - not playing, not walking, not being held, not nursing, not eating, not sleeping. It was a rough day for our poor little guy and then Der discovered that he had a rash all over his back. Last night, he had a bad night too. He woke up screaming and couldn't settle down for a long time for most of the night. That's when we decided that he needed to see a doctor. It ends up he has an ear infection in his left ear and the rest of the symptoms - rash, diarrhea, fever - are due to a virus. So, our little guy is fighting off two things at once. Poor little boy!

Kirsi and I both have colds too but we're not nearly as bad as Aidan. Kirsi had a rough day on Sunday but since then, she's been fine except for a runny nose. I've got lots of congestion and can't taste right now but I'm OK.

Before sickness hit our household, we went to the beach for the day last Saturday and it was a blast. The kids had so much fun playing in the sand! Here are some pics of our day:

This is too cool!

You can see how happy he is to be playing in the sand:

Dhobi
The doorbell rang this morning and a very shy, humble young man in his 20s introduced himself as Vineet. Vineet is our dhobi.

Every Monday and Thursday morning, we leave our laundry outside our door. Vineet takes and washes, irons, and folds the laundry and returns it to us by the end of the day.

Kirsi, Aidan, and I are having him do our laundry. Dana is doing her own. This service costs us $70 CDN/month.

For all of the sweating that we're going to do here, we feel it's worth it.

Sujata
This afternoon, we met Sujata, who will be our maid. We had phoned her months ago while still living in Canada and arranged to hire her when we arrived in New Delhi.

She seems very nice and the family took to her immediately. She has worked for AES staff before so she knows the ins and outs of campus life.

Her main duties will be cooking and cleaning. She took cooking classes in Vietnamese, Thai, and Mediterranean cooking. She, of course, can cook Indian food as well. We gave her some rupe…

A Day of Firsts at an International School - Geckos, monkeys, and humidity oh my!

We arrived in New Delhi late last night to a warm welcome from the admin and support team from the American Embassy School New Delhi. It was nice meeting the people that were helping us get here in person. They've been very efficient and helpful in navigating the sea of paperwork of applications and visas.

Jet lag had me up at 4:00 in the morning and I immediately checked out the Hindi Devotional playlist on Google Music. I'm really digging the mellow, groove. Click on the link, turn up the music, and keep reading. Aidan is really digging the music, as well.

So far, it's been a day+ of firsts.

Kirsi and Aidan's first long international flight as independent children. They did a great job of navigating all of the steps involved in international travel and are pros now.Our new apartment is really nice - a video tour and pictures to come. Kirsi "loves our apartment, it's awesome."A gecko on the balcony at 1:30 in the morning sent the kids screaming to the sa…

Lodi Gardens & Kirsi's Soccer

Here is what our Saturday has looked like so far: Dana and Aidan Dana and Aidan went with the school group named HOPE at Lodi Gardens. There, they worked with the rest of the staff and students to offer activities to students from a local school. It's an amazing program.
Aidan said that it was "really awesome" to be able to work with the students and that Lodi Gardens was beautiful. 
Dana came away with some amazing photos.
