Groundhog Day At NC Museum of Natural Sciences!

Our class had a grand time of learning, exploring God's wonders, and lots of groundhoggy fun at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences on Groundhog Day!!
Sweet siblings joined in the festivities too!
A highlight of the day was spending time with Denise Shadduck and Lolly (aka Sir Walter Wally)!
Denise is so sweet and is so gracious to let me spend some time snuggling with Lolly!
Oh yeah! I was delighted!!
And she endorses my book! In fact she took a nibble of one copy.
Our hats were the fine work of my wonderful assistant, Julie Clary!!
Waiting for the official ceremony at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences!!
 And just so you know, that's Punxsutawney Phil peeking out of that bag! And Grover was there!

Gracie was there (waaay down in the corner). Somehow she didn't get in the pictures! Oh No!
And then the big moment!!

Raleigh's Mayor Nancy McFarlane made the big announcement.
Six more weeks of winter!! But this year, winter has been good to us.

It was a beautiful day to be outside enjoying the beauty of God's creation...groundhogs and all!!
