First flight


First flight

I adore kites.. so much so we always keep one in the boot in case the circumstances are favourable for a quick fly. There is something about a kite in flight that makes people stand and watch and it is just so exhilarating for all.
We only ever buy very cheap ones which usually just last a year. We get the one stringed variety as they will fly in almost any conditions.

Well Joseph of course has been many times with us and we let him hold the plastic handle and one of us wears gloves and holds the string!! Today as the kite was only from Poundland (yes £1) I got it flying and then he held the handle alone and was able to copy how we pull it and then he ran with it. It was so wonderful to see. He had a look of pure joy on his face as he watched it fly. Everyone around in the park stopped to watch him with shouts of 'Go on' , 'Keep it up' ...

If you haven't tried it, it's a must!
