Waiting for Leap Day

I love Leap Day! When my kids were little we started this leap day tradition and it has been so fun. On Leap Day we take a photo of them and put together a little list of all their favorite things at the time - colors, foods, things to do, animals, etc. Then we put it in a sealed envelope to open four years later. This will be our third time opening it. We save all the photos and papers from every leap year and just keep adding it into a new envelope. I keep the envelope on top of my fridge so I can always remember where it is. So......tomorrow is the day! We get to open and see how much they have changed.
On another note, we had a friend whose birthday was Leap Day. That would stink! You would only have a birthday every four years. But then he was only "four" when he really was sixteen - I guess that wouldn't be too bad!
