57 days

I just counted it out. 57 days until Jacob leaves. Sounds like a long time.

 

57 days = 8 weeks

57 days = 4 pay periods

57 days, long enough to attend a 5 week Bible Study class with Jacob.

57 days, long enough to go on one more family vacation.

57 days, long enough to figure out travel plans while he’s gone.

57 days, too long to really have Peter fully explain when Daddy is leaving, why, and when he will come back.

57 days of co-parenting until he leaves.

 

57 days pales in the 260 days that Jacob will be gone.

Sometimes I know and understand that Jacob being gone at Basic and Tech school is nothing when you think about family members going off for a year deployment and facing danger. Jacob should be safe the time he’s gone. I take comfort in that today.
