Wind, a Kite, a Boy and his Dad


After the morning rain and a math test, we opened the windows to a fresh day with lots of sun, clouds and wind.  We decided that it was time to pull out the octopus.


We could have prepared a science lesson to go along with this activity.  We could have talked about wind, weather, aerodynamics....


But who can study, looking at this face?

And sometimes the feeling of freedom and play is more important than book knowledge.

Especially when you're with your Dad on his day off.

And sometimes, flying a kite can be fun while leading to other learning adventures.

Because when we kept walking to find higher, more windswept hills, 

We discovered miniature tennis courts just for kids.
