Happy Groundhog Day!

Well, it may not be such a happy occasion at your house--I heard we are in for 6 more weeks of winter.

I would believe it. Gracie is home for the second day in a row due to snow, and I am watching it fall outside the window as I type.

Since Gracie and her Kindergarten class have been talking about shadows and Groundhogs, I thought it might be fun to "capture" her shadow.

I have been trying to get her silhouette done for years now, but you can NOT do this with a child who won't sit still. So, how did I manage to get Gracie's? It wasn't easy, and you will notice like in real life--her shadow's mouth is WIDE open!

After I drew her shadow we had fun taking pictures of her making different shadows on the wall.

She really got in to this idea and was doing all sorts of different poses and laughing at herself. This is a great way to have a little fun, and maybe learn a little something a long the way.

We hope where ever you live that you are enjoying the cold and the snow, because it looks like it will stick around for a while.
