one of those absolute thrill moments... and, of course, 'touch and go' just before the successful lift-off! While Phoebe had been given her kite at Christmas time last year, we'd not managed to have a really good, proper go with it until now. So, on a very dull, wet and windy [Father's!] day recently and we could be contained no more - out we tripped to a local beach for some fresh air and a gasp at nature. So good for our souls, thoroughly feeling the elements, paddling in the surf and all taking turns, finally - after we claimed it from the Father (aka biggest kid!). And here is Phoebe's own-all-by-herself-inaugural kite-flying moment - such a 'swell' moment for a parent. Oh - and what was with all the rainbow colours? Well, a dull day does call for colour!!!
