Kite Flying ~ A Look Back

I vaguely remember flying trying to fly a kite when I was a kid. I think my older brother probably tried to help me, but ended up flying it himself.... What I actually remember is tying on pieces of fabric for the tail and running a lot.



So when Noli got a kite several years ago, I was excited that she and Papa were able to get it to fly. It was such a pretty kite -- a big Monarch butterfly.



She even had on an almost matching dress for the occasion!



Noli's job was to hold the kite string and to run a lot (following in my footsteps, ya know)!



It's fun to look back on that kite-flying day -- she is so much more grown up now at seven-going-on-eight. (I can hardly believe it!) She had just turned four in these pictures -- just a little kid!



Sometimes the trees almost catch the kite....



Sometimes the string catches Noli!



But then she gets it back....



Sometimes Noli catches the kite



Her other job is to point out where the kite is -- she also likes to show us just how windy it was.

You can just see the pretend tattoos on her leg and arms -- she takes after mommy and daddy with that!



 All in all, a glorious kite-flying day!

I remember learning to fly a kite from my childhood, always plenty of blustery days for kite flying in the UK! This looks like it could be one of those special days that is remembered for years to come - great photos and as you say lovely bright matching dress with a beaming smile - enchanting!

that's a great looking kite. I was never too good at kite flying myself, but I love to point and watch! {:-D

Noli does look like she is having a wonderful time flying her kite. You're right -- making that kite tale was part of the fun when we were little kids.

Noli looks like she's having so much fun! I loved flying my kite as a kid. Mine was a butterfly too!

Cute pix! I remember trying to fly a kite when I was a kid, too. However, I could not get it upward for too long at a stretch before it crashed to the ground. I don't know, if it wasn't windy enough or what now. But, I never did that again until our kids were small. Of course, living in the city made it difficult to find a place big enough. Our yard just didn't work. It's fun to go someplace where others are successfully flying kites high up in the sky. Maybe I'll look for opportunities this spring to spot large Butterfly tails above my head. :)

I've never flown a kite! Hard to believe. My kids had them a couple times though. Looks like she was having so much fun.
