Today was the first day of school for the kids, so we had a nice morning together as a family... we got up together and made breakfast and sat at the table and ate together. Then we got ready and all walked the girls down to school. I was telling them that I would be gone next week. And, if you don't know this, it would be important to know that I work for Campus Crusade for Christ. I travel reasonably often (like next week) for work.
Me: I'll be gone next week.
Z: Gone! Where will you be?
A: Z, you know that Dad has to go on his Crusades.
