Day One hundred seventy-five:

Kate’s Last Day of Swim Lessons…

Today was “Safety Day” at Miss Connie’s, where Kate has learned to swim for the past three summers.

The students have to wear their street clothes and shoes so that they can be safe if, God forbid, they fall into the pool accidentally.

So the kids spent the session doing jumps off the diving board as well as swimming races (like here) and relays as well as just being able to play around on floats at the end.

Miss Connie is simply incredible and teaches the kids in a language they understand and flat out makes kids into successful swimmers.  At four, she’s already doing the crawl, breaststroke, and able to do flip turns.

Michael Phelps, watch out.
