I used to walk into work at a school-aged daycare in the morning–the kids would run at me, “Miss Kerri!” They’d exclaim before I could even get my jacket or backpack in the staff closet, “What are we playing in the gym today?” Regardless of what we played, the most eager of these kids were often kids who had asthma.
