Happy Leap Day!

A little leapfrog on leap day! My kids are both enjoying leap year for the second time in their lives.

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one,
Except for February alone,
Which has four and twenty-four
Till leap year gives it one day more.

Mother Goose Rhyme

Speaking of sayings about Leap Year, we recently ran across a Leap Day joke in Simms Taback's Great Big Book of Spacey Snakey Buggy Riddles and thought we'd share:

What is the best year for grasshoppers? Leap year!

Guess the same could be said about frogs, too!

So cute! We are going to play leap frog during recess today as well. I'll have to share your joke with the kids. Happy Leap Day!
