what are these boys looking at??
nope. it’s a kite. an awesome kite. papa ger’ brought his amazing technicolor flying machine (which we did not take a picture of—go figure) and the boys were smiles from ear to ear. papa ger’ even let them help fly it.
i present to you—the flyer helpers!
i love the look of bliss on the boys’ faces side-by-side with the look of concentration and care on papa ger’s face. flying that monster kite on the beach could easily have lifted the boys into the air—it’s had papa ger’ off his feet a few times before—but he handled it and them beautifully. the boys loved, loved, loved it.
oh! oh! oh! oh!
let’s go fly a kite
up to the highest height
let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring
up through the atmosphere
up where the air is clear
oh, let’s go fly a kite!
thanks, pg, for a most wonderful adventure! i can’t believe we are home and back to business as usual. we should so move to the beach.
