I like waking up in the morning without an alarm clock (well, I take that back. My alarm clock has a really cute grin and claps when I pick him up from his crib). I like having a slow morning with my people before Zack heads off to work. But, so much of the work we do requires us to not only plan ahead but to be follow up so we remain in community with one another.
