Dusty the Kite

Brazos received a kite for his birthday from one of his sweet friends, Emma.  He loved the kite because it had a picture of Dusty on it from the movie "Airplanes."  Almost every Tuesday and Thursday when I drop Brazos off at Mother's Day Out, his friend Ethan is waiting for him with an airplane in hand.  I think Brazos looks forward to school because that's when he gets to play airplanes with Ethan.

About two weeks ago, Brazos asked if he could open his kite up and go outside to fly it.  The weather happened to be great "kite-flying" weather, so we opened it up, put together the few pieces, tied the string onto it, and went outside.

At first, I ran with the kite to get it going and would hand the string off to Brazos; but soon, Brazos decided he could do it all on his own.  He tried and tried his hardest, but he just didn't understand why the kite wasn't taking flight.  He was running with the wind, instead of against it.  I tried persuading him to run in a different direction, but he didn't like that idea.

His kite-flying experience lasted about 10 minutes until some other toy caught his interest, but he had fun running trying to get Dusty to take flight.  And momma had fun trying to snap some photos of him. ;)
