At recess, Minji and Carlos taught Lily how to play Kick and Cover.
Lily ran up to the ball and tried to kick it.
She missed. By a lot.
Kevin, Minji and Carlos laughed out loud.
And to their surprise, so did Lily!
“Try it again!” They urged her.
She tried to kick the ball again. But missed even worse than before.
The all laughed so hard, they fell. They hadn’t laughed that hard in a really, really long time.
