Kites

The simple things in life…

We recently visited my sister and her lovely family in Peoria, Illinois. Besides seeing some sights and spending time together, they had a little gift for Adam and Laura. 

A kite. 

I probably flew kites no more than 3 times in my life, and they were all over 30 years ago. 

I’ve been missing out. 

Here’s a perfect way to spend time outside, have tons of fun, get some exercise, and not spend a dime. 

As Bert from Mary Poppins sang,

With tuppence for paper and strings,

You can have your own set of wings

With your feet on the ground

You’re a bird in a flight

With your fist holding tight

To the string of your kite

Having so much fun with so little had me thinking:

What are other simple things in life that we are missing out on?

What are other “kites” in our lives?
