My girls love to swim, and love their lessons, but they are so quiet with their teacher, they never say one word! They nod their heads, do everything he says, and are getting so much stronger, but are completely silent the whole time. It's pretty funny to me, since they talk pretty much non-stop from the moment they wake up, until the seconds before they fall asleep. Usually, once they get to know someone, they open up, but not with Ethan. Ah well, at least they are learning!
