First off I would like to say thank you to David Gomberg for covering for me here. I have been flooded with emails, inquiries, inspirational heartfelt letters from people all over the world.. I have found myself speechless many times over the last 5 days.. hard to believe but true.
I have just gotten home this morning from Lincoln City and had exactly 15 minutes to get my tail to work. Tonight has been the first time I have had a chance to read all the responses here and I want to say Thanks!
When Connor stated a year ago that he wanted to audition, I have to admit I did the * oh yeah sure * response that I will forever be humbled by now. I work with kids, and many times I have learned from them, little did I know that my son was going to be the one to teach me the biggest lesson.. * If you can dream it, you can do it*.
The kite is indeed a Revolution Indoor, but all logos have to be covered for the show, so I hand painted the black ripstop to match Connor's shirt as best I could. It's a bit hard to see that in the utube video, but you can if you look at the close up shots of Connor in the beginning.
Anyway, please know that Connor and I are indeed reading as much as we can when we have time and your comments are falling in well visited woods with clearings where there are lots of critters flying indoor kites in the quiet of the forest.. I think I need some sleep lol hugs all
