My Evy bear is two years old today. TWO!

Never before has time gone by so fast.

In honor of her musical spirit, I thought I’d do a little photo essay of a recent kite flying attempt (really, just an attempt) her daddy orchestrated. For about a two month period, Evy sang “Let’s Go Fly A Kite” from the movie Mary Poppins at least every 15 minutes.

I love that her world is one where it’s totally acceptable and completely expected to break out in song at any given moment.

That’s how the world should be.

I hope she always believes that and lives that way.

Here’s to two years on the books for Evelyn Ruth!

With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings


With your feet on the ground
You’re a bird in a flight


With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite


Oh, oh, oh!
Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!


Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring (Evy says “storming!”)


Up through the atmosphere


Up where the air is clear


Oh, let’s go fly a kite!




One thought on “Two

  1. What a great series of images! I found myself humming the song as I looked at the pictures. Looks like Evy was really into the kite process, yes?
