I love visiting with my family--our kids, their spouses and our two grandkids. And, today we had a great visit with our grandson Xavier and granddaughter Gretchen and their parents.
My face lit up and my heart thumped in a happy beat when Face Time opened on my computer and it said my daughter was calling from Bosnia and then I saw it. There was my granddaughter laying on her dad's stomach with her head bobbing up and down.
Then I saw my daughter with our grandson with a big smile and who was filled with lots of conversation.
My wife and I loved it. What a great present. We caught up about their family, their daily life and their friends that we met when we stayed our kids in Eastern Europe.
Just a note to baby-boomers with kids far away: Don't be afraid to try a video visit. It's pretty simple. And it's worth it. Here are a couple of photos:
