One of my oldest and closest friends invited Jingju and I out for a boat ride today. The weather was sunny and clear, perfect for an afternoon on the river. Jingju just loved it; waving to all the boats passing by, bouncing over waves, and swimming in the cove. Jingju doesn't yet know how to swim, but does that stop her? Of course not. Give her a life preserver and a noodle, and she's all set. A funny side note, my friend had made a joke about swimming to China, and by shear accident we moored at a buoy labeled "China," which Jingju then swam to. My friend's with Jingju in the slides below.
