Emma's Big Month!

Emma is home from school today, due to a very icy morning, so we decided that it might be a good time for her to post something on my blog. I'll be typing but Emma will be dictating what I type. Make sure you post comments to this one. Emma will be checking to see what everyone has to say. Here goes:
This Feb. will be so fun!
1. My mom is going to start teaching Sunday School.
2. I'm going to Whitetail Ski Resort with my friends Anessa and Emily. I'm going to go snow tubing.
3. This Monday is the 100th day of school. We're going to do fun activities all day long. I'm going to use macaroni noodles to cover an entire paper that has 100 squares on it.
4. Aunt Judy is going to have a baby soon.
5. My dad might come from Massachusetts.
6. Valentines Day is coming soon.
7. We were supposed to do fun stuff for Ground Hog Day today, but I guess we're going to have to do it on Monday.
8. My birthday is on February 7th. I'm going to be turning seven on the 7th.
9. On Monday I get to start going to before school daycare. It will be so much fun. I get to see Aunt Judy's neighbor Nicholas at daycare. I also get to eat breakfast there.

It sounds like you have a busy month ahead of you! I'm sure you're going to have so much fun--especially with Aunt Judy's new baby!

Wow! You are going to have an amazing February! I don't know what's more exciting - turning 7 on the 7th or having a new cousin. I hope your daddy gets to come visit you, Abby and Nathan soon. Have a great weekend and give Caitlin a hug for me.
We miss you lots and can't wait to see you :)

Hey Emma,
This is going to be a really busy month! You have so many GREAT things being planned. Make sure you take pictures of your snow tubing adventure so that you can show them to me when I come down to visit. I'm coming on the 22nd. I love you so much!! Give Abby and Nate a little snuggle from me.
Love Daddy

A funny conversation Emma and I had yesterday:
-Emma: "So what is Ground Hog Day anyway?"
-Judy: "Well, there's this Ground Hog named Pauxetauny Phil. He lives in Pa. Every year he comes out of his hole on Feb. 2nd and looks for his shadow."
-Emma: "Does he only come out of his hole on Feb. 2nd?"
-Judy: "No, he probably comes out of his hole a lot."
-Emma: "Then why is Feb. 2nd Ground Hog Day?"
-Judy: "I don't know. Maybe someone just made it up."
-Emma: "Who made it up?"
-Judy: "I have no idea, but if the ground hog sees his shadow it means spring is coming. If he doesn't see his shadow, it means winter is going to last for another 6 weeks."
-Emma: "Is the ground hog always right?"
-Judy: "No, in fact I think he might get it wrong a lot."
-Emma: "Then why does anybody care?"
-Judy: "I don't know. I think people just think it's funny to talk about."
-Emma: "I'm going to have to ask Mrs. Wilhide (her teacher) about this. It just sounds silly to me."

Emma's right!! It's all very silly!

It's going to be such a fun month! We'll have to make sure that all of our cameras are rolling all month long. Then, maybe at the end of the month, you could post another blog updating everyone on all these exciting things! You are probably the only seven year old blogger in the whole world:)

I agree with mommy. You should definitely take lots of pictures and post them for all of us in Leominster to see. I know Mrs Sally and your old Sunday School class would love to see all the pictures of your adventurous month!
Caitlin had fun with you, Christian, Abby, Nathan, Aunt Judy and mommy!!1
