They came, they flew, they got the family out of the house. (In January, which, retrospectively, might not have been the best for our health, but it was worth it.)

A Paul Gunther butterfly....

...and a "small" delta-coyne. (Only in the world of kites and passenger jets does five feet of wing mean "small.")

A note to any other Missouri kite fliers fighting with variable winds; delta coynes. Seriously. They’re unshakable, and they’ll climb up on anything from 5 to 25 mph, easy. We launched Tiny from a standing takeoff, no assistant, to 150 feet in 40 seconds.

We're gonna need a longer line.
