Jennifer Figge is about to embark on another stage swim across the Atlantic Ocean. But before she left for Cape Verde off the coast of western coast of Africa, she visited her goddaugher’s kindergarten class in Aspen, Colorado. The 5-year-olds are studying the oceans and were fascinated by this women who has swum across the Atlantic.

We colored sea turtles, ate gummie sharks and goldfish crackers, and talked about all my friends in the sea: whales, dolphins, rays, tuna, jellyfish, Portugese man of war, and sharks.

I also brought along the Shark Shield and explained how I plug it in at night to recharge just like their battery-operated toys.

My favorite question was from a little girl who asked, ‘What will you do if you are out there and it is Valentine’s Day? How will you get your cards?’
