"Ms. Kara is it spring yet?"
Me "Almost. Today is the last day of February."
"So tomorrow is March?"
Me "Yes that is correct. Today is actually a special day because it only happens once every four years."
"Well what happens if today is your birthday?"

Great question....

Happy Leap Day!

All of the kids did a scavenger hunt around the neighborhood to collect cans and other items for our local food bank. Afterwards they all got cupcakes as a special treat...

"Ms. Kara I really want another cupcake."
Me "If there are extras everyone might be allowed to get another one."
"Or maybe we could donate them with all the cans we collected so they have something yummy."

So sweet!

Colby and Napoleon

Colby "Today is free day! What should we do?"
Napoleon "My brain hasn't decided yet?"
Colby "Let's play in the fort. Or play soccer. Or football. Ms. Kara is getting better at football."
Napoleon "I'm not sure."
Colby "Is your brain still deciding?"
Napoleon "Yes, I will tell you when it's done."

Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend!
