    It’s been great kite flying weather… We are bananas about kites now. I am not kidding. If there is no wind the boy storms around as though it’s personal. Kites are fun!

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
