Early Risers, Jet Streams and the Rising Sun
Our East-facing back window provided yet more entertainment this morning. Julius and Gunnar thought it was a good idea to wake up this morning at 6:45 a.m. At least, Layla, held out until after 8:00 a.m. The cloudless sky and rising sun made the jet streams of departing and arriving planes amazingly visible and kept all of my children entertained for quite some time. It also provided ample opportunity to review North, East, South and West. But I couldn't convince Julius that an arriving plane really wasn't headed to Florida. I think they miss their cousins from Florida and would love to be on a plane, headed that direction, themselves!
