Go Fly a Kite

Thank Aunties Jess & Nicole.

We took Reefie to fly his first kite today after dinner.  Reef loved it.  What a great form of exercise and wonderment.



Lets go Opa!
Lets go Opa!

Opa . . .  Dad - I can hold it myself.
Opa . . .  Dad - I can hold it myself.

I see it way up there.

Offered to the wind . . . . the kite takes flight.

The kite is movement. It dances in the sky as the child on the ground invents choreography: forward, back, hold the line steady, pull, feed out, run together. It is not unusual to hear a child inventing an imaginary world as he flies, identifying with the kite by giving it a name, character, a role in the great theater of the sky.
