My boys are blessed with not one but two amazing grandmas. Both love to surprise them with little thoughtful gifts. The latest gift - my mom bought each of the boys a kite. Our farm is pretty much perfect for kite flying since it sits on top of a bluff with lots of wind and open space.
The day after they got their kites, I took a break from the building and the book to watch the boys fly them. (I might have even taken a turn myself, though I'm a bit rusty...) It took the boys a few tries, but they got the hang of it pretty fast.
All three boys had a good time, though the teenager is way too cool to let me catch him being undignified on camera. The younger two, not so much.
