It is funny as we move further and further away how close we still can stay. With Facebook you can keep intouch with people halfway around the world. Which is pretty cool. Personally I have been using Google+ hangouts for video chatting with my best friend in Virginia for a long time, and today the kids and I had a chat with my brother-in-law who had recently moved to North Carolina.
Much of the chat was spent giggling over seeing their uncle on the computer screen, and him pretending to eat corn long distance. But it was a good time and I hope we can make it a more regular thing.
