Hi, I'm Marcus (but everyone calls me Marc). The other guys are on their way here, but I ran ahead so I could be the one to tell you about our activity today. We're going to take a swim in the lake!
I think I'll spread out my towel while I'm waiting for the guys to get here.
"Hey Marc! What did you run off like that for?"
"Who me? I just wanted to be the one to tell Julie's future readers about what we were doing today."
"Oh is that all? We thought we had cooties or something."
"You guys might as well sit down We gotta wait for Doug anyway."
We started rapping about the dance and stuff when Doug walks up and says, "All right men, let's hit the water!"
Something you gotta know about Doug.....he's on the high school swim team. He told us we had to earn our free time in the lake. He made us swim out past the platform to the deep part of the lake. Then he told us we had to swim laps for 5 minutes! Can you believe that? So that's what we did; up and back to both markers for 5 minutes straight! Dang! We were almost too tired to swim after that!
Whew! The other guys might be used to this, but I sure wasn't! Anyway, we finally swam back to the platform and had some fun!
"Watch me dive, guys! Woo-Hoo!"
Danny's a pretty good swimmer, and Kyle told me he likes to surf. Maybe I'll get him to teach me one of these days.
Well, Julie's readers, that's pretty much it! Except that all that swimming made us so hungry that we stuffed ourselves with hot dogs when we came back for lunch! Be cool! Stay in school! Keep it light and be Dyn-o-mite!
