That is because your single picture size is toooooooooo large.
Reduce the picture size to a max of 500x500 or maybe up to 700x700 pixels. Then you can upload several pictures for each message.
Example:
100_0207_700x.jpg 100_0208_700x.jpg 100_0209_700x.jpg
Almost all photo editors will allow you to resize photos and alter things like exposure and etc.
I like to use ACDSee for a lot of this. For in depth work, I use the much more expensive Photoshop CS/CS2.
You can easily rework the three messages you already sent.

I hate snow. Too cold and wet, but my love for flying kites outweighs my hate for snow.

The wind condition depends on what direction it's coming from. If it's coming from the trees, then it's very gusty and swirly, wich is why I never fly by my house anynmore, my house is surrounded by trees. If the wind is coming from the neighborhood that is behind me in thos pictures the wind is still a little gusty, but not bad.
