Part of our ward was in France. They change times a little bit apart, too, which meant different bus schedules once we crossed the border. I can only imagine trying to get your family to church on time during that switch!

I think that’s a good thing. Sometimes in the middle of a project I tend to work so much and all the time – so time differences give me more space.

I think I was still getting used to French time!

It’s taken me awhile to get used to it, but I’m pretty good now. Except 9:00PM. I still mess up 21:00!

I’m a huge fan of black out hours. Sometimes I wonder if they become more and more important as kids get older and family schedules get more complicated.

And every so often they would reevaluate together and rework the core hours.

Although I love the early morning work time, the most challenging thing for us is finding a good time to have the kids Skype with the grandparents. My kids are most attentive and engaged in the mornings, which is the middle of the night in Texas! Of course, when the grandparents can skype is late afternoon, early evening – which is NOT a good time for them. They are grumpy, hungry, whiny, and just all around more difficult than they are in the morning. Definitely a first-world problem though!
