Problem Statement:

Modify the pre-placed blocks to produce the following animation:
- Have the ball bounce 8 times.
- Use a different color for the ball when it bounces up and for when it bounces down.
- Change the size of the ball - make it smaller.
- Change the starting position of the ball so it begins bouncing from the ground and reaches a height of 18.
- Change the speed of the bounce.
