Get It Out

One night last week when our family was feeling a little frazzled, we stopped the car and decided to get it out.  It was exactly what we needed to just forget of all the STUFF that was under our skin and have a good time skipping and running and just letting go.  It was ALMOST windy enough for kites, so I grabbed the kites from home and we flew them until sundown.  

It took Poesy a few tries to get her kite going.  It wasn't quite windy enough to keep them in the air, so the girls would run to keep them flying.  Poesy would shout, "It's working, it's working!!" and then stop to turn around and see it in the air.  Of course, the kite would then come soaring down and we'd start all over again.  Hope was pretty much ace when it came to keeping hers in the air... because she's ace.  

Days like these are good for the soul.  It's true that no one's kids are perfect, nobody's life is stress free, everyone has tiffs with their spouse, etc, but it's these kinds of moments that make that other stuff disappear.  :)

  13. How fun that you flew kites instead. I hate when it seems like you just can't shake the funk or stuff off, so I'm glad that flying kites worked!
