Well, the school where I teach is off for Windy Gap tomorrow. It is a beautiful camp, there is lots to do, it is great being with all of the kids, etc.

But...

I miss my family. I really hate being away from my family. I hear about these dads that like to get away, but I really don't understand it. I love my family.

My wife is the greatest! She is absolutely my best friend! She is fun to be around, she is funny, intelligent, and I just love her and love to be around her. I could not have asked God for a better wife, and my heart aches when I am not around her.

My boys are great as well. I really think that they are about the greatest two kids that a parent could have. I might joke around from time to time about them being bad, but I really believe that they are about the best behaved kids.

So, I hate being away from these people.

I feel bad sometimes. If there is the option for a school event, I always opt not to go. If I can leave early, I do. If there is a way out, I take it. I always choose them, because I love them.

So, I am looking forward to Windy Gap, but I am also looking forward to it being over.
