You know you are getting old when your children's teachers are younger than you. To be honest I passed that particular milestone about ten years ago, but 8 does seem very young to be an RE teacher. And that's not all, one of Katie's fellow year 7 students is just 3 today. Katie missed being 3 today by 17 days.
Oh, the weirdness of leap day.
I discovered two things about leap day today which I didn't know.
1) People born on 29th February are known as leaplings. How cool is that?
2) Leap years are not every four years. Years which are divisible by 100 are not leap years unless they are also divisible by 400. 2000 was the last such year. This is because the earth takes a little less than 365 days and 6 hours to revolve around the sun (365 days,5 hours, 49 minutes and 16 seconds if you really want to know).
March tomorrow and spring on its way, boy am I ready for it.
I hope you enjoy February's sampler.
