A great first day - kids are very well behaved although three could not come today due to a fight on Friday. I asked that the staff not withhold swim lessons from them so they will be in tomorrow. An order crowd this time. We only have 4 - 6 year olds and quite a few 10-12 year olds. The group is from two different neighborhoods this time - 15th Street and Twin Canal. Nice to see a few kids from Twin Canal from last year - they have really grown! Looking forward to another great week - We tested the kids by age this time to see how that would work and it is really good. We have one class of Level 1 - 2 for the 6 - 8 year olds; a class of low Level 2's for 9 - 12 year olds; and then two classes of upper Level 2's and Lower Level 3's for the 9 - 10 year olds and one for the 11-13 year olds. Will post as the week goes on.
One other thing - we have a child this session, age 11, that had a brother drown in the bath tub when he was 9. He has a twin brother who is now 15. That would put her at being 5 years old when it happened................................
