Ok, so this is my son, 21_N.gif jcar. It's not my fault that he's up at 4am, it's his fault that I'm up at 4am!!

He enters challenges occasionally, and asked what the challenges were this week. I told him. First mistake. :)

He didn't have school on Tuesday, because of elections, and so he decided he wanted to shoot for the 4am challenge. He was so excited the day before, he could hardly wait to get up at 3:30am!

Tuesday morning rolled around, I woke up at 3:30, and if it wasn't for my son, I would have gone right back to bed! So it's all his fault.

We had a marvelous time. Went to the donut shop -- went to The College of William & Mary where he took his shot:

He was interested in going and finding the sunrise, but unfortunately, it was still 2 hours away.

What a great challenge -- what a fun time spent with my son! :D
