What Is The Word I'm Looking For? - Feedback Please! -

Dear Readers,

I need your help!  I am in search of a word. I need a word that I can use when I talk/write about Leif's year away from home while he is in school. If he were in the military, the word would be "deployment." If he were going on a mission, I would use "mission." If he was running away from work and school I would use the word "sabbatical." However,  none of those words apply to our situation.  So, my wise friends and family, I will open this up to you. What word would you use for this situation? I look forward to your suggestions!

Comment From Lee Hunt:

He's going on a MISSION to secure his family's future!
He's going on a SUBBATICAL to study at a different location so he can get his doctoring degree.
He's going on DEPLOYMENT with the full armour of God!
He's going on a TRUANCY from regular duties.
You're both going on ADVENTURES.
You're going on a MISS-HIM while he's gone!
Love, Dad

I would use "training" or "school."

And I want to thank you for your comment on my blog. I was telling Hubby the other week how I'm sad because very few people read my blog and make comments. I want someone to read my blog and think, that was funny and creative and it made me laugh (or something to that effect.)You said exactly what I wanted to hear and you did it without me asking for someone to leave such a comment. You made my day. :)

One of the moms in my homeschooling group has a husband in the military he is assigned to California but because he is close to retirement they are settling in Southern Utah. She calls what he is doing geobaching
a geographical bachelor.

Hmmm - "adventure" is the only word that comes to mind - or school adventure. ? Hopefully my mom chimes in here. She's pretty good with words.
