Royal Awakening

Like many others in HoCo this morning, I awoke at 4:00 AM. Unlike many, I did not do this watch a wedding of our former colonial masters across the pond. Peanuts 7th grade class at Ellicott Mills Middle School is taking a field trip to the North Bay adventure camp Center at Elk Neck in Harford County this morning. The Students were to be at school by 6:00 AM.

Parenting is often a thankless job. Getting Peanut up at 4:45 AM was a perfect example of this. She was not at all happy about getting up before the sun and was somewhat less than cooperative with my efforts to move her along. Of course it never even occurs to the kids that the parents could have slept later if they hadn't had to get them up, fix breakfast and chauffeur them off to school.

We made it though and it looks like they’ll have a perfect day for a Chesapeake Bay experience.
