Yesterday was a very blustery day. The skies were very dramatic. Huge billowy clouds in a dark sky. In the morning we went outside to play on our playground. It was so warm that we soon had to shed our coats!
We have had this kite for a very long time but we hardly ever get to fly it! When I realized just how windy it was outside, I thought to myself – kite weather!

We had to fly the kite over the fence, because it threatened to hit the children in the head, as it dipped and rose in the gusty winds.
Several of the children wanted to help to fly the kite, so each child took turns holding the kite spool, while I held the kite as high as I possibly could.
The wind gusts came and went. The kite rose and dipped. When there was no wind, we looked around to see where it could be. Sometimes we could see it high up in the crowns of the trees, making the branches sway to and fro. At other times we saw it whipping the sun shades at the farmers market, just across from our playground.
Suddenly the wind was back, lifting our kite into the air!
