I began my day searching the Internet to see what Punxsutawney Phil had to say about winter. It was an assignment from Simone by way of her preschool teacher. She was supposed to turn on the TV this morning and see the report. There was no report. I found something on YouTube, but it had been taken down. I looked high. I looked low. No 2010 groundhog prediction. Finally, just as she was walking out the door, I found a television site and let her watch the hullabaloo that surrounds Feb. 2. Punxsutawney Phil has entered the 21st Century and sent a text of his prediction this year. He saw his shadow and says there will be six more weeks of winter.
Simone had been prepared for preschool. I guess this is what folks mean when they talk about parental involvement. Whew!
