The Kite Flyers

What better thing is there to do on a beautiful windy day than to head to the park and fly kites?! 

We fly kites just infrequently enough that when we do do it, it's like a dream come true for the kids.  

The fact that there was actually windy enough weather on a day that was also beautiful and mild, and a day that we had enough time in our schedule to drop everything and head to the open spaces of a local park, is an unusual enough occurrence that the kids would have happily stayed there all day.   

Unfortunately we had to leave eventually so that I could take care of the jungle that our yard had become.   Our neighbor's yard is green, lush and meticulously cared for, which makes our yard look all the worse with its weeds, bare spots, and ragged edges.  
I am teaching Adam to mow it, so at least now it's short and weedy instead of looking like an overgrown chia pet. 


"When the winds of adversity come, remember one thing--kites fly the very highest against the wind. Kites don't fly in spite of opposition, kites fly high because of opposition. In fact, they couldn't fly without opposition."
