Learning something crucial: How to swim

Hola a todos! Since my mini-bag is in process. For this week of recess, I decided to learn something entertaining and “half” new: swimming with my head submerged. And no, it’s not that I don’t know how, but it’s tough for me to swim with my head down (very strange).
