This weekend we had the great privilege of keeping our two oldest grandchildren (ages 4 and 5) over night. Mom and Dad were attending a conference hosted by CureSMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) a genetic disorder which our younger granddaughter suffers from.

Because I often see the girls 2-3 times a week I worry about the extended time we will be away from them while we are going to be on the Camino. So I took the time this weekend to try and explain where we are going, why we are going, and what we will be doing. Essentially I told them that we were going to take a walk with God because we haven’t spent much time with God lately, and that we would be walking 500 miles. I tried to put 500 miles in perspective for them. I’m not sure how good of a job I did explaining.

In the end I asked if they understood and after a pause our oldest granddaughter said, “Sure. You’re going to get your steps in.”

OK, works for me I guess 😉

  1. LOL. That’s one way to distill the trip into as few words as possible.

  2. It’s good you explained what and where you are doing when you are gone. Also good to have some sleepover time with the girls.
