Swimming Sports

Swimming Sports

Yesterday we went to our swimming sport day When we got there we got changed into our togs. Before we went into the pool we had a quick rinse in the shower.

I waited until it was my turn to race. I listened out for my name. 
When I heard my name I went into the pool.

I waited until it was my turn to race. I listened out for my name. When I heard my name I went into the pool.

It was fun. I liked the kick board race. I like lying on the kick board, kicking and making splashes with my feet.

I was trying to come first. I did well.
