Paper Lanterns and Kites

We are studying ancient China in school this week. We found this lantern pattern on Pinterest and just finished it today. Any craft project always makes CJ that much more excited about school. 

But our favorite project in honor of China week was getting to fly our kite.

We couldn't have more perfect weather and wind. Breathtaking beauty and such happy children!

And yes, even I had to get my turn with the kite. I ran it up the hill and then laid down in the grass and watched it fly for a bit. Pure bliss!
