ideas

last week we started talking about groundhog day…..
introducing a new concept with my little friends is always very funny to me….
especially to hear the ideas that they come up with when they are describing a new thing…..

so what is groundhog day??

according to my little friends…..
groundhog day is….
a day you eat turkey with your family
a rat
a bear
a family day to eat
a family day
a home day
rock and roll
you lay up, dig up food for winter, go to sleep
a coloring day
a rock and roll chair
a bad day
a rock and roll cow

after we made this list….

we talked about what groundhog day really was….
and that is when we made our own predictions about what the groundhog would do today.

15 of my friends said the groundhog would be scared….
and we would get more cold days
1 of my friends said the groundhog would be happy to be awake….
and close his eyes…so he wouldn't see his shadow!

personally i'm totally excited that phil saw his shadow!

Your little friends are so cute.
I'm ready for Spring with this warm weather. Tomorrow we'll be back to winter.

It's amazing what little brains can think of.
