"Mother, may I go out to swim?"
"Yes, my darling daughter.
Fold your clothes up neat and trim,
But don't go near the water."
Let's get a pool!
We could put a pool where the grass is!
Can we go to the pool?
If we get a pool we can't do the nature strip yet.
I really want a pool.
A pool would be good.
We wouldn't have to drive.
Can I get in my swimmers?
