The breakfast table and our morning routine

Each morning, except for Wednesday mornings (late arrival to school), the boys arise at 6:20 am to Rich's very pleasant voice whispering "Good morning."

Rich heats up the kitchen with the stove, sets out the dishes and juices, and lights a scented morning candle... and when there's no sound coming from the second floor, he quietly moves to the bottom of the the stairs and calls out, "YAGO? LUIZ!? Are you up yet?" Some noise sounds... "Uh-uh."

They have a breakfast of cereal and juice, make lunches, empty the dishwasher from the previous evening's washing, catch up briefly on Facebook, checkout the weather for the day, and wait for Aunt Connie to arrive at about 7:10 am.

Another the day begins in America.
