Home made kite
Growing up every Summer in the Philippines we make our own kite or "sapi-sapi". We make it from newspaper or plastic bag then a glue and a coconut stick. I used to watched it with my father and my brother making the kite and now my brother is the one doing it for my nephew and two nieces. My kuya Gino as what my brother told me teased my brother while he was making the kite, that the kite won't fly. When it was done my nephew Gino were so happy he can't contained his smile and laughter because first time he flew a kite made by my brother. What makes me happy is the bonding between my brother and nieces and nephew. It's summer there and in the Philippines it's time to play, play till you drop!! And my brother wanted them to enjoy a normal kid and experience what we experienced when we were young too. Here are some of the pictures....
He tried to make it fly....and it did!! See it here My Kite Flew
The proud pilot my Kuya Gino. The feet are dirty, soaked in sweat, I just hope that he didn't get asthma after playing the kite. This is what I like for my nieces and nephew to enjoy while they are young. I don't like them in front of the computer or even tv, they have to explore games that we play when we were young too. I knew sooner or later they are going to look for spiders, climb trees, go for a long walk with my brother in the forest then join church summer classes. I remember when I was young it's fun, our mother want us to take a nap after lunch, but we usually escaped living our mother who is the one sleeping hahahahaha. While the three of us (my siblings) are playing outside! What a deal!!
