We’ve been trying out Skype to visit with our favorite people that for some crazy reason don’t live in Decatur with us, and it’s been FANTASTIC.  The kids have so much going on now with their little lives, and let’s be honest, have they ever been great telephone conversationalists?  Um, not really.  But, this whole video calling scenario gives them the opportunity to actually see the other person, show that person their drawings (or birthday presents), and most importantly, make silly faces.  After all, that is the most important part of any conversation, right? 

The biggest bonus?  It’s totally free, just a download away from a practically face to face with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and best friends.  Technology, it’s a crazy fun thing!

Try it out!
