Kite!

by Berck

The UPS man brought a long skinny package today. Wondering what the heck could possibly be in such a package, I looked at the return address. A company called “Into The Wind”. And then I put the pieces together: Nathan had told us that a present was on the way, and he knows we love kite flying… A kite!

Since most everything else we got as presents were things we asked for and thus things we needed, this is by far the most fun.

I don’t think I realized how much we needed a kite. We even have a place within walking distance to fly it! Oklahoma is actually a great place for kites, being full of flat windy places.

It’s a great little two string kite. Very lightweight and willing to please. I worry Oklahoma may be a little too windy for it, delta kites being better suited to moderate wind, instead of the 35mph Oklahoma breeze.

There are photos of it in the gallery.

Here’s a little video of it. Posting it will probably kill the server, but oh well.

    It looks like a bird! I’m so excited that I could actually see the video! Way to go, Jonah!
    I’d really ignore a certain party about attaching your camera. I’d let him attach his when he
    comes to visit!
