Month Five: Service Sneaks
When all four members of the family want to do different things on the first Day of Rest in May, Momma suggests they sleep on it and see what answers come the following day. In the morning, Martin wakes to see Daddy setting up a special pot of tea and a sweet note for Momma, and this sets off a series of "service sneaks" where everyone focuses the day of rest on taking care of someone else in the family.
