A Day At The Park And Another New Friend






It was finally a beautiful sunny day, so I took Jingju to a park to have lunch with a friend and her daughter (also adopted from China and now almost 12). I was pleased to see Jingju able to be apart from me. She took my friend's daughter's hand and went off to the playground with her. My friend's daughter also taught Jingju how to play the game, G0 Fish. She was very patient and kind to Jingju and took a great interest in teaching and entertaining her at the park.

Jingju Gets A Bike And New Friens






Today Jingju had her first play date. She had lunch with her new friends, and after lunch, she was given a bicycle to keep that our friend's children had outgrown. Jingju hopped on the bike and took off down the driveway before learning how to use the breaks. She ended up safely on the grass giggling, thinking her near accident was very funny. Once she got the breaking business down, she was off and peddling. She loves her new helmet, another gift from our friends, and wouldn't take it off until she got home. I thought she might want to go to sleep with it on, but no, she preferred to take her umbrella to bed instead!
