This week uncle took us to a camping park near a large lake with sandy beaches where people can swim. We were looking forward to swimming months ago, so as soon as we got to the park we couldn't wait to head to the beach to get ready for a swim. I didn’t get used to the water when I first got in the water, I felt it was too cold, but after a few minutes, I felt that the water was warmer than the outside. After playing for a while, my sister suggested that we compete in swimming, because only by exercising can we keep our body temperature and not be frozen. Arrived, but Sister Mingming didn't know how to swim, so Sister Wenwen had to teach her slowly first, while I tried backstroke. When I was a child, every time I saw my father lying on the water, I was envious, so I asked my father to teach me backstroke, but every time I failed, because I was too afraid of choking on the water. Every time I gave up my studies in frustration... This time was no exception. After trying a few times, I lost my confidence and felt that I would never learn to backstroke. I said: Don't be discouraged, I'll teach you. So my sister first supported me to float on the water, and at the same time made my hand move back and forth, and I slowly started to swim, but as soon as my sister let go, I would sink. I tried many times without success. When I was about to give up again, my sister said to me: You can't give up, try again, just lie on the water gently and relax your body. Here, have confidence! My sister taught me while showing me, and with my sister's encouragement, I finally learned to backstroke! When I was lying on the water and watching the seagulls flying in the sky, I was very happy, and I am very grateful to my sister for teaching me so patiently!
Yesterday we made the pie, and we did everything from cutting the leeks, kneading the noodles to mixing the stuffing. Since Zichen and I were in class last time, we didn't help, so we can finally experience it this time. Originally, I thought it would not be difficult to make a pie. It should be easier than making a bun, but when I really started, I realized that it was so difficult, because the dough of the pie was covered with oil, and it was very difficult to wrap it. It is difficult to stick together, and the top is relatively soft, and the filling will be exposed accidentally. It took me several minutes to wrap the first pie... But practice makes perfect. After a while, I found that when rolling the dough, I had to leave a thick layer in the middle. A little bit, roll out a bit thinner on the side, so that when you wrap it, you can basically stick it with a little bit of force and then twist it again. If there is still a broken place, take a small piece of dough and roll it out a bit thinner and cover it. The pie that was originally like a small bun became thin and round when pressed in the pan, like a serious pie. The pies I made by myself and my sister's experience in mixing stuffing, the pies this time are really delicious.
