Happy Leap Day!

Since today is BigBoy's very first Leap Day and because it's the end of February and we all need a break, we have decided to skip school today and have some fun! I believe kite flying is on the agenda, maybe a special picnic lunch or an afternoon movie that one of the ladies at the forum suggested. We aren't sure, but we are having us some fun right after we head off to Mass and Stations this morning.

If you need some help explaining Leap Day to your kids, check out this website. You can also learn a little about the history of the town that is the Leap Day Capital of the World and find out who some famous Leap Day babies are or what significant events happened on Leap Day. I don't think we will go so far as to have frog's legs for dinner, but they are meatless should you be so inclined!

Have a great day!


  1. Happy Leap Day to you too!! Thanks for all the great links!! I think we will be passing on the frog legs... Hope you all ended up having a very fun day!

  2. Wishing you a wonderful leap day. It looks like you will have lots of fun following this plan.

    Ive never eaten frog legs and hope I never have to!

  3. Aw, dang! I wish I'd come over here on Friday and seen all your great leapday links! See what I get? We were talking on Friday about poor St. Oswald whose feast day only comes once every four years... We were imagining God saying to St. Oswald, "I have some good news, and I have some bad news..."


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
