skype play dates rock.

we just had a 1 hr and 44 min playdate in Africa today.
for free.
thank you Skype.

Like, Melissa had a meeting in the other room and I packed and cooked for a trip this weekend.

It was like they actually had a play date.

in this season of my girls being keenly aware of what it means to move, because many of their friends are military and have just left and because we are leaving, it was a special gift for them to finally 'get' the whole Skype thing.

1 hr. 44 min.
that my friends, is REAL hang out time!

at one point I had to set 10 min timers so there weren't fights over who's face was in the middle of the camera...
it was that good people.

Bah ha ha!!! I didn't know you took pictures! I took pictures TOO!!!

And dude, I will have to take some pics of the "after"...because I wasn't joking when I said it was like they had a for real play date! Girl my office was trashed after they got done! Toys everywhere!

What a special gift that was. So cool that they were able to connect and "play" together even from thousands of miles away.

See you next week!
