Kung Fu

Jingju is taking a martial arts class at her Chinese school on Sundays. She's a little lukewarm to it, but goes willingly. They got their uniforms last week and I had hoped that might get her more excited.

Then I found out the Shaolin Warriors were in town:

After the performance, Jingju did Kung Fu moves all
the way back to the car. She has her class later today, so
I'm curious to see if she enjoys it more now. I was so sure
when I signed her up that she would love it. So we'll see.
If not, we'll try another sport or maybe dance. I'm crossing
my fingers for Kung Fu, however. I think Jingju would
make a fierce Shaolin Warrior. I wonder if the monks will
accept girls?

In Which
We Are Introduced to Winnie-the-Pooh and Some Bees,
and the Stories Begin

Jingju was a bit not well tonight with a touch of a fever. I put her to bed early, and because she was a not too bouncy sort of girl (she often is at bedtime), I thought to read her Winnie-the-Pooh for the first time. I wasn't sure if she'd love the silly old bear, since you never can tell with little girls. Well, she lay very, very still and listened very carefully. She was properly giggly at the at the giggly parts and nicely sleepy at the ending part. I would have liked to have read on to Pooh Goes Visiting and Gets Into a Tight Spot, but little girls with colds need to get their sleep. So, tomorrow we will visit the 100 Aker Wood again and meet the rest of Pooh's friends. I think she'll like that. I think she's that sort of girl...a girl who like bears and humming hums, and reciting tiddely poms.

Grace and Hope for Children

Jingju walked past the stores filmed in this video on her way to school every day.
