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!!
