I received my first soccer ball when I was 7 years old. I was extremely happy.

During the weekend, I played a soccer game with my mom, dad, me and Jimin (My sister). At the game I kept thinking that the soccer ball was so beautiful. It had the colors yellow, green and white. It also had a shape of a triangle in the middle of the ball. I played soccer at the playground which was just next to my house. At first, my dad told me how to play soccer. Now that my dad helped me, it was easier to play and I can do some skills while I play soccer. It was enjoyable and a hard game

When I went back from school when I was 9 years old, Jimin was making my ball dirty. She was putting the ball into the mud. I was so shocked. I grabbed the ball from Jimin. I needed to be careful because I didn’t want my hands getting dirty. I brought the ball to the bathroom and started to wash the ball. After few minutes later, it looked new so I played with it again.

It made me happy because I was glad that I fixed the soccer ball.
