Leap years always excite me. I don’t know anyone who has a February 29th birthday. But the idea of having one is kind of cool. (Unless you are that person and you only celebrate your birthday every four years. Still kind of cool though!) Nonetheless, this day seems special to me.
I decided I wanted to research some fun activities to do with the little ones and came across this site. There are lots of activities. My favorite was creating a time capsule that would be opened four years later on the next leap day. Waiting four years to open it is totally doable! We have not completed this yet but when we do I’m going to have my little ones choose a small toy to include in our box. I’d also like to include pictures of us, a letter telling about our life now, and some fun things we have done. A survey about our likes and interests would be fun too but my boys will need help completing it. In four years, though, they will be able to write most of it themselves. Crazy!
In retrospect, on the last Leap Day in 2012, we had no kids. I was only eight weeks pregnant with my first. A lot has changed in these last four years. I can’t wait to see what life will be like in 2020 on our next leap year. Let’s try to take it slow. Time has a way of speeding up when you least expect it!
I hope you all have an amazing Leap Day! Live (or should I say Leap) it up
