Leap Day

Today I tried to explain this to Jake and Sam…………

Leap DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey guys, today is Leap Day.  That means every 4 years we get an extra day because there is a little bit of a day left over at the end of each year so every 4 years we add a day to the calendar.

Jacob, “Do I have to go to work today?”

Sam, “Do I have to go to school today?”

Me, “Guys it’s not a holiday it is just that every 4 years……..”  The boys looked at me like I was crazy.  If they don’t get a day off or get to miss work who cares?  On AOL today they had a video of an astrophysicist explaining what Leap Day is all about.  If I have to listen to an astrophysicist explain it I can’t expect the boys to get it.  It’s on the calendar and that’s all they need to know!

I will use this extra day to tell my family how much I love them.  That’s it. once every 4 years I get an extra day to do that.
