No, that is not considered as a temporary absence from the home.
ACCORDING TO THE PEACE CORPS:
"The EIC has several tests. You must meet all the tests to qualify. The test that is most difficult for PCVs to meet is that
you must have been physically present in the United States for more than half the year. Just maintaining a home in the
US does not count as being in the US. There is a special rule for military which counts overseas service as being in the
United States. That rule does not apply to Peace Corps Volunteers."
