Flying high

The lady who looks after E recently visited China on a holiday and she came back with kites for all the kids. Yesterday we went across the road (we're fortunate enough to live one house from a large expanse of park) and flew it. E hasn't ever seen a kite in real life. He was most taken.



It was a reasonably windy afternoon and the kite flew without too much trouble (and despite the fact we used too-heavy twine as the string). It was up...



It was down ... and tangled (of course).



I'd forgotten how much fun it is to run as fast as you can with the wind in your face and a kite fluttering behind you. So much fun.



I think he liked it too.

Kites are great fun. You're lucky to have the perfect kite-flying park nearby!

We actually own a couple of kites and NEVER FLY THEM. I don't know what's the matter with us.

We too live opposite a big park and with all this wind we've had lately up here, we've been saying we need a kite. This post has made me want one even more. I think next time I'm in Kmart....
