High up in the sky

Posted by Dawn at Thursday, June 24, 2010
These few days, the weather has been good. I do feel at times like I am in New Zealand, with nice breezy weather. How I wish Singapore can be like this forever.

Anyway, taking opportunity of the nice wind, CT took the family out to fly our kite. CT has been very enthusiastic about flying kites as he succeeded in flying so high the last time that he maxed out all the string we had. So he decided to combine two reels of string in one. So if we succeed this time, it will be twice as high and boy, if I were an aircraft pilot, I would fear flying near our area!

Where we stay is great for flying kites as there are so many open fields! There seemed to be kites flying almost every day in our area, that I feel maybe the kites have been left there permanent!



Big open fields are also a great place for my kids to just run and have fun!



Danielle was only interested in pulling the kite. As for Caleb, we let him try it out only after the kite has flown quite high up.



We were glad that we succeeded in bringing up the kite up to a new level! Here's the final height of our kite after maxing out two reels of string! Its twice as tall as the HDB flats!




I think taking into consideration how popular kite flying is in Singapore, they should consider it as a national sport or maybe include it in the Youth Olympics!
