We've had some fantastic weather lately. The temperatures are warm, but, the humidity hasn't set in yet, so we are outside and loving it. Last week on James' day off we took the kiddos to the school playground for one of our family's favorite things - kites.
James had a line of eager helpers, wanting to "fly" the kite. Actually they are just holding on to it - the flying will come with a little more practice.
On the other end of the string, we have our "throw" helpers. This job is crucial. The thrower holds the kite in position until the wind hits the throwers face. At that gust, you hurl the kite straight into the air and the flyer takes it from there. James loves the kites that do swirls and flips and he draws a crowd at playgrounds with all the aerial stunts. It's just fun. I love that it reminds me of Maryland where kites are such a part of the beach day.
And if you don't have a kite job, you can always play basketball with your soccer ball. See the soccer ball stuck in the basketball net? At least you made your shot, right, ladies?
