The girls did great with the early morning! I think they mostly loved the novelty of eating breakfast not at the table (cold French toast? Yum.) and riding in Paul's truck all together. And, believe it or not, Paul didn't give me any grief at all about the terrible inconvenience OR about the fact that I came home a full four hours later (and in a very different condition...) than originally planned.
I think it was a great trade for LAST weekend. =)
