As a native Pennsylvanian, this day really makes me smile. Such a funny little holiday. No matter what Phil has to say, winter does come to its natural end. In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy the things that make winter special…warm blankets, soup, frosty windows, lots of hot tea, and early sunsets.
I accompanied my preschooler to his class this morning. I read Groundhog’s Day at the Doctor by Judy Delton to the students, and then my son and I passed out the groundhog cookies that we had made the night before. It was a fun visit!
(Note: When I began writing this post, it actually was February 2nd!)
