I Want To Fly My Kite

Do you remember this post ? I was reading the book by Cheri Fuller. Well one of the chapters that stood out to me was about flying a kite. Basically, she was saying how wonderful and therapeutic it is to just take some time to fly a kite with your kids. I used to date a guy in high school who loved to fly kites. Ok, so this crazy boy was a wonderful human being but was a bit eccentric to say the least. I never understood why he would choose to just pack up on an afternoon, head to the park, and fly a kite.
Well, today I guess I learned. The girls and I got back from gymnastics and decided it was a perfectly windy day to head out and tackle kite flying. The girls loved it and I loved that they loved it. At first, I didn't really want to go outside in the chilly temps and run around the park flying Barbie and Snow White. But once we walked over there and began, the dread was forgotten. I loved seeing their faces and hearing their giggles. Paloma was running at top speed yelling, "fly, snow white, fly." It was so fun. If you haven't done so recently, I highly encourage you to pick up a $3.99 kite from Target, take it out back and simply have some fun with your precious children. We had so much fun, they want to go back out after nap.
