Kite Flying

Last Saturday the weather was perfect for kite flying. The wind was strong and the sun was behind the clouds (which made it easy to stare into the sky). Luz had been begging to fly this incredible bird kite for over a year and the timing was never right at the same time as the weather. Saturday was her lucky day.

The kids loved it and were amazed. They had flown kites before but not one as spectacular as this one.

I think Christian might have enjoyed it the most. While Luz and James walked over to Richmond's to see if he wanted to join us for lunch, Christian decided to see how high he could get the kite. When the kids returned and could barely see the speck of a kite in the sky they were devastated, crushed imagining that their kite was gone forever...

And thrilled when they figured out it was not.

The outraged faces are the best -- that kite is amazing!
