My First Back Tuck

One time in third grade I was at my friends house and we were on the trampoline. My friend also did gymnastics.  She kept doing back tucks and back lay outs. I wanted to try, so I said, ” ‘Im going to try a back tuck.” “Ok,” she said. My heart was pounding as fast as a rabbit running away from it’s predator. I was so scared. What if I landed on my head.  I didn’t want to think about that. I started jumping and then I let my self rotate backwards in the air and then I landed. After that I kept doing back tucks. They were so fun! Now I still do them and love them!
