As we hovered around my iPhone to FaceTime Matt, the boys asked him what he was doing.
"I just woke up," he said. "I'm getting ready for work."
They were flabbergasted!
"We are getting ready for bed!" they shouted. "It's already tomorrow there?"

Instant shock set in on their faces.
"Dad is in the future!"
We laughed and made jokes about if there were flying cars where he was. It was a lighthearted moment between the five us. It felt normal. Even if we were talking to someone in the future.
