An empty pasture, a windy day, 5 energy filled kids and you have the perfect combination to pull out the kite and take it for a flight, with the hopes that it will soar higher then you can imagine.
What a relaxing weekend we had....full of play.
and long walks...
and buggy rides where these two sing in their own language, Jillian sings for hours the same song over and over and Jett joins in with the perfect harmony of ahhhhhhh., so any chance of seeing wildlife is out of the question on these walks of ours, where animals run before they even see us.
In the middle of this weekend we took a moment to pull out the kite, unknot the string and take a run to the pasture.
hoping to fill that tug on the line, hear the flaps of the kite rhythmically beating in the wind
that rushing moment when the wind grabs the kite up into it's stream and the lifting begins....and did that kite fly..?..
that baby SOARED!!!
