Up in the Atmosphere, Up where the Air is clear...


.yesterday we flew kites.


.here i am struggling with the stupid lizard kite. it was so small it wouldn't fly.




.lauren was the photographer. she was smart and sat in the grass enjoying the sunshine.



.matt's parrot kite.


.poor lauren had never before flown a kite. she struggled at times.


.her younger brother david showed up for some of the high-flying fun.


.we untangled a lot of knots. most of them were lauren's doing. not all, but most.






.when we got tired of flying we took a page out of lauren's book and enjoyed the sun.


.in this picture matt is trying to stick his fingers up my nose.



.binghams.


.the boys look like creepers in this photo.




.the boys started biting our hair.


."this is me as a kite".


.i'm so happy it stopped snowing and now it can finally be proper springtime.

Now I have Mary Poppins stuck in my head.

But these pictures are so lovely! I wish I were outdoors right now.
