Early Birds

This morning I got up without my alarm. It felt good to be back into the routine, after a week off. I started the dishwasher, did a load of laundry. Ate a grapefruit and granola. Checked email. Sarah was not happy to be roused, but she never is; Matt popped out of bed. The kids ate. Erik read the paper. At 8:20 I pushed Sarah out the door to catch the bus, eager to walk Sam and Matt. At 8:30 I noticed the bus hadn't come and, besides Sarah, there were no kids at the other stops. What was wrong? Did I get the break dates wrong? Erik pointed out it was not 8:30 - but 7:30! Last week we left the house each day at 7:30 and I'm guessing my body is still on that schedule. My neighbors are probably still wondering (or laughing!).

That is too funny. Poor Sarah! She sure looks cute in Sunday's hat post, though.
