So While I Was Working My Fingers to the Nub

My kids decided to fly kites!


It was a beautiful sunny day with a very faint breeze.



Too much wind and the kite crashes before you can get it up in the air.


Not enough wind and you exhaust yourself trying to get the kite high enough to catch upper wind currents.


Either way, sometimes your string gets all tangled up and you find yourself sitting in the grass trying to figure out where it all went wrong.

Poppies and kites... so nice. I remember when my one year old boy decided to fly a kite all by himself without telling me. And he did. Just a big walking baby in a nappy flying a kite by himself. That shouldn't be possible!

There is nothing better than a kite flying day. I would have been tempted to take a break from work and get one in the air with them.

It's about time to dig mine out of the closet. I'm sure they had a lot of fun, tangled lines and all. How do they get so tangled?!?

I love to go fly a kite. We have a lake here with big grassy parks down either side, and it's perfect for kite-flying. Except of course if you lose concentration, run down the hill, and fall over the little wall into the water. Not that that happened to us or anything. Ahem.
