Mr. Bickerson has been out of town for the past few days, lying on a beach somewhere, eating yogurt. He hasn't traveled in a long time and I wondered if his not being here to get up before the crack of dawn might have the effect of the kids sleeping in a little longer in the morning.
The answer is no.
Everybody in this family is ready get up and get going at 5:00 a.m. except me. I'm tired!
