Go fly a kite

Kites were in the children's Easter baskets this year, and today was a particularly windy day. They were quite a production to get up in the air, these kites. First, we had to assemble them correctly. Then, we often found ourselves frustrated at how easily the string would tangle into knots.  So many failed attempts! Finally, just the right amount of wind and kid power combined, and all the frustration went flying away on the wings of a butterfly and blue angels jet. The squeals and giggles were outrageous.
I encourage you.....go fly a kite. It does good things for the soul.
