First Skype! Such a relief!

by Dad (Pat)
Saw the kids live today for the first time in 2 weeks, thank God for video because there is nothing like seeing your kids moving around AND talking that makes the experience so much more enjoyable. Doesn't matter that they had a pig pile in the middle of the call and Cole was not hiding how much more interested he was in his Diary of Wimpy Kid book then me. It doesn't matter, I got to see them, see their smiles, hear their voices all together at the same time like usual. Two weeks has been tougher then I thought but this is a savior. I get to hear all the plans and school goings on, stuff that I would only half listen to a month ago I now wait with baited breath. Tell me how you scraped gum off your shoe, I don't care, just keep talking. And Ryan is very excited to get me a Jimi Hendrix poster and send it out to me. Seriously puts a tear in my eye! Owen just wants to get in the picture and mess with his brothers.

And then the internet drops, just like that, but it's 8:30 and time for bed. And I know I can call back tomorrow.
