Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – February 1, 2016

Bow-Tie thinking about Groundhog dayHi everyone,

This week I’m puzzled.

February 2nd is Groundhog Day.

The day is about shadows and predicting weather.

Where do these shadows come from, and exactly how do they work?

And why is it a groundhog who gets to work on that day?





Bow-Tie and his shadowCats cast shadows.

There I am, right there.

But look at me, I’m really tall.








Bow-Tie and his shadow standing upIf I stand up, my shadow stands up too.

I see me over there.









Bow-Tie and his shadow from the other sideBut wait…

…if I turn around, my shadow goes on the other side of me.

How does he do that?







Bow-Tie making his shadow smallHe was starting to freak me out.

So, I made him get real small to get a minute to think about it.





Hey, wait. Is it only me that has this pesky shadow?

Let’s see.

Courage has one too.

Where are they coming from?

And what do they want with us?

Bow-Tie and Courage and shadowsYuck!

Now our shadows are all mixed up, and Courage’s shadow is on me!

I can’t figure shadows out.

And I don’t see why there is such a big deal about this groundhog.

Seems like we all have shadows and we can’t do anything to control them.



But I know one thing for sure.

It’s official…

Bow-Tie predicts six more weeks of cuteness

…I saw my shadow and there will be six more weeks of cuteness!

See you all next week.
