Let's Go Fly a Kite

One of my favorite childhood memories is flying kites with my brother by the beach in the summer. I knew it was something I wanted to share with my kids. Last years kite adventures were a total flop, literally. The kite I thought was such a score at the thrift store fell apart in the wind. So for April's birthday I went to the science store and got a proper kite. April loves rainbows so this tie dye one was screaming her name.

As she is only three the thrill didn't last forever but when she got that kite up in the air it was pure joy on the little girls face. She was jumping up and down beside herself that it was flying. There we stood, the 4 of us, watching April with her rainbow kite against the blue sky. It was the peace and joy I had been dreaming of when April was just a baby. Simple joys but profound.
