I grew up making and flying home-made kites. I don't have the patience to figure out how to make one these days, but the Dollar Tree has some pretty fabulous kites that actually work great for kids. We have a large open space just behind our lot and it's perfect for these breezy spring days. Something about filing back to this area and flying kites is so simple and lovely. My boys love it and it's so peaceful to lay down and watch the kites fly high above us! Jaxon is pretty darn good at getting his positioned so well, Austin loves to run fast and make his go all over, and Carson loves to tilt his head way back and watch them. Simple fun. I love it.
