Oh this wind!

I am not sure I can take it anymore. It's driving me crazy. So we made a kite.





Thin dowel was used. String tied it all together.





Cut tissue paper the same shape (x2) and sticky tape to both sides.





Tie on a tail.





Attach string to the top and bottom and join in the center with the ball of string that will be used to fly it.





Fly that kite! (pardon blurry pcs but we were moving fast!!)





Even the cows came to watch.






Look how high it went (small dot in center of pic).
We flew it till it was dark, and little messyfish in perfect "continuum concept" mode took himself inside to be warm by the fire. It was so much fun. I almost want the august winds to stay....

One of my fondest memories is being with my Father flying a kite. I wasn't much older than LMF. You are creating such wonderful memories.
