Studying Shadows on Groundhog Day

Rachel played with shadows in honor of Groundhog Day!  We went outside to draw her shadow with chalk on the driveway.  But I caught this view of her with the sun shining in her hair and just had to catch the picture.  She's growing up so fast!

Then I pushed my luck and tried to get some close up pictures of her.  But she got silly and crazy-eyed!

We started at 10:00 this morning.  She stood on the driveway and I traced the outline of her shadow.  

And she colored it in with more chalk.

We repeated the chalk shadows at 1:00 and 4:00.  She was excited to see how much her shadow changed based on where the sun was in the sky.

The mid-day shadow is the most realistic whereas the late afternoon shadow is really stretched out!
