I first took swimming lessons was when I was a little baby about one year old. The first time I cried. I really liked the playing in the water, but I didn't like getting my face wet. One time I cried because I was afraid I would go under the water. My teacher was Miss Jan. She had a really cool swimming pool with a lot floating toys, like a rocket. I enjoyed swimming with my teacher. She taught me how to lay on my back and float. She taught me to move my arms like a bird. It was fun. Soon I was not afraid of the water. The next summer I took swimming lessons again because I still did not know how to swim and I had not taken swimming lessons in a long time. I love going to the lake and to Schlitterbahn with my family. I needed to learn how to swim to be safe. This time my teacher taught me how to swim with my face under the water. I was kind of afraid of the water. She taught me how to make bubbles and I was swimming better. To get even better you have to practice over and over again. I practiced at my neighbor's, Mr. RT and Miss Cynthia's, pool. They would let our whole family come over to swim. We would have a really great time. I started by swimming across the little part of the pool and soon I could swim the whole length of the pool. I learned how to dive down and get toys off the bottom of the pool. When I was six years old I did a front flip into the pool. Learning to swim is important because it is good exercise and it is healthy for you. It is cool to swim when it is hot outside. It is really important if you live near a lake or a pool because you have to be safe. I am not afraid of water anymore. It is because of swimming lessons. I would like to keep swimming and be on the Bulldogs swim team when I grow up. I would like to be in a swimming race and win a trophy.
