Empathizing with the Wright brothers

This afternoon we had big winds here on the lake, and Grandma pulled out an early Christmas present for Lucas - a kite!

We thought it would be an easy task to get it to fly (after it took quite a while to mount it...), because it looked really flash, but ha - were we fooled! It just didn't want to fly!

After a serious amount of attempts, and Granddad having the kite violently crash on his head (!), he sighed:
-"Now I know how the Wright brothers felt"...
