Our family tends to live by the seat of our pants. It probably comes from DH being bipolar. So while things are a bit crazy most of the time, it also leans toward the beautiful and creative side too.
As a rule, the children don't rise before dawn but occasionally it happens. Daughter #2 was up to watch the sun rise the other day--and took pictures to prove it. We really do have a lovely view of the world waking up each day for those who are willing to partake.
