I push open the screened door and run all the way to far corner of my backyard. First, I hop on the swing and start to pump. I push my legs forward and then bend them back – legs straight, legs bent, legs straight, legs bent.
Soon I am swinging high, so high! The wind blows my hair and I feel happy, so happy that I start to sing the song we learned in music class today. I sing and keep pumping, higher and higher!
Soon I hear, “Sally, dinner.” I pump one more time back. Then, as the swing moves forward, I push my body, let go of the swing and leap. I land with both feet on the ground in a squat position. In I run for dinner.
