Let's go fly a "K"ite!

I've got to say that this alphabet summer is so good for me. It is forcing me to think out of the box and do something with my kids. They LOVE it and are constantly guessing what we will be doing for each letter. We are definitely going to be repeating this next summer. Anyways, for K day we flew kites. Target had them on clearance for $3 each and the boys picked out a Transformers one (Cameron) and a Spiderman one (Gavin). Even though it was 95 degrees out with barely any wind and I would have rather stayed inside in the air conditioning, we headed to the park and tried them out. There was a lot of running involved and I was surprised how long they lasted in the blazing hot sun, but they both got their kites to fly without much help from me as Mason and I tried to stay in the shade. Cameron especially enjoyed it and didn't want to leave when Gavin had had enough, but I promised we could take them to the beach with us in a few weeks where they might actually stay up without having to run!

The boys look so hot...Cameron's hair is wet!!! I wouldn't have made it two minutes in the park. I like the outdoors, but I don't like to be too hot. Too bad you don't live close, I would have sent the girls with you.

You are having such a great summer! It is fun to hear how creative you are with each letter! Way to go! And all your documentation. They will always remember this. :-)
