Groundhog Day is just around the corner. Your little ones will love this free Groundhog Day printable for preschoolers!
I know that winter just arrived, but I’m ready to watch it go! I’m not a huge fan of the cold temperatures.
So, I will be watching anxiously to see if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow on February 2.
My hope, of course, is that he does not see his shadow and that spring will arrive sooner rather than later.
