Go Fly a Kite

While I was coloring this image I was making myself crazy about what color to make his jacket when it hit me.  Doesn't everyone have a gray sweatshirt hoodie jacket.  Even as an old coot I still an a sucker for a gray hoodie.

I just love this little boy, he has the cutest expression on his face, I wanna pinch his cheeks.    I wonder  if he ever got that kite off the ground.

Sadly, I've been noticing more and more challenges packing it in.  So it's with great pleasure I enter the first challenge at a new blog, No Matter Which Challenge.
