I am not a “Shrimp” anymore! I am now an……. “EEL!”
I am so excited that I moved up. I get to practice my kicks and move around the pool even more.
On my first day as an “Eel”, I practiced my kicks with my face down. I had to grab the wall, keep my head in the water, while blowing my bubbles and kick, kick, kick. That was some hard work!
Then I practiced my rocket ship. You know I love the rocket ship right?
Then it was time for the doggy-paddle. This one I get to keep my face out of the water, and make my hands into doggy paws and pretend to scoop ice-cream!
Then I practiced my doggy-paddle with a noodle.
That’s me in the noodle, swimming in the deeper part of the pool. That was so exciting.
Then I climbed out at the deep end, and jumped back in.. with the noodle.
Look at the splash I made!
Then we doggy-paddled back to the shallow end.
Teacher Emmy threw some toys in the water for us to dive and find. I went way under and found a blue ring. Now you see me, now you don’t.
Being an “Eel” is so much fun!
