Seven Day Challenge - Day 1 Swimming 2013

Jen at Conversion Diary has proposed this challenge:

So we just finished two weeks of swim lessons. There was an array of emotions from all that participated. For me, it was exhausting. Getting all three children to one place for four consecutive days is more difficult than I thought. The fourth day was July 11, which is free slurpee day. So I told them if they put their faces in the water we could get a slurpee. Eden did not want to put her face in at all. After the first day, she said, "I do NOT want to float. I'm scared" So I told her teacher not to use the word F-L-O-A-T and maybe she would be more receptive. But then Eden said, "I do not want to float and and I don't want to F-L-O-A-T" Smarty pants! So for two weeks she floated on noodles and cried if her teacher gently put her under water. Anna floated on noodles too and she gently eased her face in but never voluntarily.
We are not going to do lessons again for the rest of the summer but just play at our pool and pray for a miracle, ha!
St. Adjutor, pray for us!!

Adjutor (died April 30, 1131) is venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church. He was born in Normandy, France, where he was made a knight in the First Crusade. He is credited to be the patron saint of swimmers, boaters, and drowning victims,[1] and the patron saint of Vernon, France. The stories given for his patronage of boaters vary. Some state that he was captured by Muslims in The Crusade, who tried to force him to abandon his faith, and when refusing, he escaped persecution by swimming.[1] He swam back to France and entered the Abbey of Trion. There he became a recluse remaining up until his death of April 30th.
