Happy Leap Day!

So, have you ever tried to explain the actual reason behind Leap Day to a child?
Although most years of the modern calendar have 365 days, a complete revolution around the sun takes approximately 365 days and 6 hours. Every four years, during which an extra 24 hours have accumulated, one extra day is added to keep the count coordinated with the sun's apparent position.
Yeah. Well, I tried to explain that this morning to my exceedingly smart 8-year-old. Then the questions ensued. Yowza.

Either way, happy Leap Day! Did Leap Day William bring you some candy?



Real life is for March!
