Happy ....... Day?!?

When we received a message from the kids' school informing us school closing in observance of the President's Day, we did what any parent would do: I googled it. I mean, what exactly is the "President's Day?"

Well, it appears that the Federal holiday is actually called Washington's Birthday, in the honor of our first president, and that his actual birthday falls on February 22. Now, because both Lincoln and Jefferson were born in or around February as well, some states observe the same day as, wait for it, President's Day. Some states and all department stores, it seems.

Well, happy birthday, Mr. President.

In any case, we hope that you enjoy this nice break with your family. We just wish there was some snow we can play with. But, the spring weather we have been having isn't that bad either, right?
