Setting a New Record – Kites Over Enid

The local Habitat for Humanity decided to break the world record for kites flown simultaneously last week. They were actually very organized – the huge field was broken down into grids, with 100 people per square. Still, when almost 3,000 kites are involved, there was lots of tangling! Luckily, when we brought down the Wee One’s and the four kits tangled to it, we were able to cut his free without damaging the line.

We only set the North American record – kids in Gaza set the world record only a month before. But still, it’s fun to say we were a part of the record setting!

Shortly afterward, he let go with his other hand. Chasing a kite is fun!

Kite flying is SERIOUS business.

Who’s surprised by the Mickey Mouse kite?

These were the kites sold at the event. Near impossible to get up and control. But fun as long as it’s not in the hands of a four year old!

Probably about 2,000 or so of the kites. They brought in all the middle school kids to help fly.
