Today is Groundhog Day ! First we celebrated Pax’s birthday . The little Gecko turned 5 !
Later we all sat on the carpet ( at one time which is actually pretty rare) and talked about groundhogs .
I wonder what a ground hog is ?
Child- “It’s like a hog on the ground.”
Child- ” He’s a squirrel.”
I wonder what a groundhog looks like ?
Child- ” Maybe a razorback that has huge horns.”
Child- ” Maybe a ground and a hog.”
I wonder what is groundhogs day ?
Child” His birthday?”
We watched the live footage of Punxsutawney Phil and talked again.
Child ” He looks like a beaver or a squirrel.”
Child- ” I think he looks like a sloth,”
We read a fiction book about a ground hog and his garden. Although it was fiction it still had some great facts about a ground hog. ** Groundhogs live in a burrow under the ground.
We had shadow play for quite a while.
Outside Gracie said ” Why don’t we have paint out here anymore?” I replied ” It is too cold. Your fingers get wet from washing and you would freeze.”
Gracie ” I want it warm. Who has to follow that old ground hogs rules anyway?”
