Not much would get me up at 4:30 in the morning. Last night I couldn't sleep though. Right now.. as I type this.. my oldest son and DIL are 6 miles from where one of the last Space Shuttles will lift off around 6:30am. (I'm not sure what this mission is. Maybe they will test blackhead extractors? I'll ask my son later.)
My son has always been fascinated with the space program. One of his dreams before he dies (many, many, many years from now I pray) has been to see a launch. With this launch being the fourth to last Shuttle launch, he knew he had to go.
I am so excited for him and his wife. I'm so proud of him for living his dream.
