Let’s go fly a kite

Last weekend I took a youth group on a residential weekend near Brecon. We had a fantastic time. The kids were exceptionally well behaved and slept pretty well compared to last year too! I think that may have been helped by the fact that we kept them busy til about 11pm on both Friday and Saturday evenings.

Saturday afternoon we made kites out of 2 sticks, paper, string and newspaper before taking them out to fly them. My kite was declared the best flyer of all!!

Which was probably cheating as it was a competition for the kids not the leaders!!

While flying our kites we were lucky enough to see some black swans down by the lake.

When we got back after flying our kites, there was just enough time for some water games before a BBQ tea.

Not only was this my first BBQ of the year but it also meant another item crossed off my Day Zero list. 😀

I was absolutely shattered when I got home on Sunday evening and have had quite a few early nights this week. I can’t be too tired for our family weekend away camping this weekend can I?

Before I go, I’ll leave you with this plea on a shop in Talgarth
