How do you take falls as an uke when kicking? i find myself sort of hopping up to flip my foot over. Is there a better way?

We normally take backfalls and frontal falls from aikido techniques when the leg is trapped by nage during kicking practice.We would normally finish these types of techniques with a pin (i.e. leglock).

For the other times when nage applies a more orthodox technique versus a kicking attack (e.g. kotegaeshi, sankyo nage, etc.) we apply the ukemi that is appropriate.
