I am a swimmer. Every other day I am in a pool, whether its at a meet (The competition part of swimming), or at practice. Either way, I am in the pool for at least 2 hours every other day. I love to swim and I love being in the pool. Some people don’t think swimming is a sport. I believe it is a sport. It’s in the Olympics, and there are many famous swimmers that aren’t just famous to other swimmers. They are world renown. I don’t swim to win. I swim to get faster and to get better at what I love.
Swimming is my favorite sport and swimming is one of the best sports to lose weight and to stay healthy. Most people doubt that, but it’s a known fact and you can look it up. Swimming is also great for recreation. Thousands of people go swimming just for fun. Swimming, in my mind, is one of the most fun sports I’ve ever tried. I love swimming and I don’t know if I’ll ever stop.
A couple people never stop swimming. It’s a very relaxing sport. Just imagine, the warm water on your skin, the water slowly tapping against your back. for most people, that is especially relaxing. Swimming can be great for anyone who wants something to do with their time or just want to have some fun. Go to this link to find out what you need to swim and go have fun!

Yesterday in class, we wrote limericks. Limericks are a type of poem where the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme and don’t make much sense. This is one I wrote:
A Man Named Stan
There once was a man
His name was Stan
He liked to stare at fish
He had a horrible wish
To meet another man named Stan
“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” – e.e. cummings
I like this quote because it tells people that they don’t have to be afraid to show people the real you. If people don’t like you, then they don’t have to be friends with you. all that matters is that you like who you are. Don’t let other people tell you who you are and who you are going to be. Believe in yourself and you will go far.
There are hungry people out there! Lets help them! Go to this link and answer the questions to donate rice to people who need it. I answered 18 questions and donated 180 grains of rice. Help the hungry!

Last time: Chris ran off into the crowd when Regan told him that the king was coming their way.
As Regan rode back to the castle with the king, she thought about what she would do when she had to go to Prince John’s kingdom. She didn’t want to go to John’s castle. She wanted to stay here with Chris. Later that night, Regan was thinking about what she could do to stay here, then, she thought of something. She would run away from her father’s castle and go to Chris’s cottage in the village. But how would she get there? There are guards all around the castle and the village! As she was thinking of a plan to get out, she heard a noise by her window. Just then, a man climbed in her window and walked over to her. It was too dark to his face. When the man stepped into the moonlight, Regan could see that it was Chris! Regan asked him, “How did you get in here?”
“I climbed a tree and walked on the branch above the guards and climbed into your window.”

Once there was a princess named Princess Regan and she was betrothed to a prince named John, but Regan loved a peasant named Chris. Regan only got to see Chris once a month when she went into town for her father’s daily speech. One day, when Regan went to her father’s speech, she saw Chris standing near a fruit stand. Regan told her father that she would be back soon and went to see Chris. They talked for a while to catch up, and bought and ate some fruit together. They were very happy together, until, Regan saw the king coming and quickly moved away from Chris. Chris followed her, but Regan told him that her father was coming and he told her that he would see her again soon and ran off into the crowd. The king called for Regan to come and she obeyed.

If anyone is stuck on what book to read, here’s and idea! A book series called the “Tiger’s Curse” series is a romance adventure series. It’s about A girl named Kelsey Hayes who’s parents died when she was young. She now lives with her foster parents in Oregon. She gets a job at the zoo and sees this white Bengal tiger watching her, and every day, Kelsey would go to the tigers cage and reads him poems. The tigers name is Dhiren. This series includes the books “Tiger’s Curse”, “Tiger’s Quest”, “Tiger’s Voyage”, and “Tiger’s Destiny.” This is a great series and I would recommend it to anyone who likes adventure.
