Addelyn just finished her second year of swim lessons. Her first year of going alone. Last year, parents had to get in too. Not going to say I missed that this year, although it was about 90 degrees every morning by 9:30 when her lesson started. Somedays all I wanted to do was jump in too!
Miss Jen (on the far left) was Addelyn's teacher. She is 93 years old and has been teaching for more than fifty years. She is a no-nonsense kind of gal and expects a lot from the kids, which is awesome. My favorite rule: "No crying!" At the same time, you can tell she truly cares for each child and wants them to learn how to swim. Addelyn grew a lot this year - her timidness in the water changed so much in the few weeks with Miss Jen.
