Go Fly a Kite!

Totally was soooo windy. I told the kids to put away their schoolbooks, and we went to the park to fly kites. Of course, we needed kites so that meant a trip to Target to pick up kites. Target officially wins the "piece o' poop" kite award! About thirty minutes in and Bionicle's string has been tied and retied about seven times and Barbie was a rumpled mass of string and plastic flapping behind my son (yes, he had the Barbie kite. His rational was that he was helping his sister. I think he just liked to see a hot blonde beating the wind). It was so funny! The kids were laughing as hard as I was. All in all, it was a perfect day, a true accomplishment. Who says all learning has to take place in school? Life is an education.

And I learned something: Don't buy kites at Target.

Check out the video. Oh, and if you're wondering why Kenna has a pink moustache, it's because she got into my lip stain...again!
