Kate is lying on the couch in her undies watching Mary Poppins and belting out "Let's Go Fly a Kite" in between telling me "they're going outside to fly a kite, mommy!" I have promised her that her kite-enthusiast grandfather will go fly a kite with her at the beach this July. I know that this will be an enormous sacrifice on your part, dad, but sometimes we just have to do these things. Besides, hearing her sing "up through the atmosphere, up where the air is clear!" will surely make it worth it.
