Our new normal...

Our new normal consists of getting up at 7:00 to take Michael to school. That's crazy early for us. We like to sleep around here. And since we get up early every day, that means that sleeping in on the weekends is a thing of the past.

It has taken some getting used to, but I think we're making it work. There are definitely good things about getting up early....

1.) Our days seem longer, which is nice! Although, the kids are in bed by 8 and I'm in bed by 9.

2.) Isaac and I have enjoyed a couple of morning walks. It rained just about every day over the last two weeks, so we didn't get out as much as we would like. Sugar even joined us one day. She loved it!

3.) And, this morning, we saw this.....
In case you have forgotten what that is, it is what we call the sun. I haven't seen it in weeks. It was so beautiful on our 7:30 a.m. drive to school. 

We were so thankful for some sunshine today! I'm also thankful that I'm up early enough to see a sunrise. It's been a while since I've seen one of those. Maybe this getting-up-early stuff isn't so bad after all!
