8 thoughts on “The Joy Of Jumping!”
Would she have jumped if the man didn’t?
They were a team – happy to get away!
I like that.
They don’t look very joyful or delighted but they do look as though they could compete in a tandem dive competition.
True, it is hard to read their expressions, but illustrations often don’t match the text well. I do like this image – it has a few flaws, but it really pulls me in.
It is beautiful.
They don’t look very happy at all! I love jumping in the water! My favorite pastime!
They have a little time to get happy before they hit the water!
