I never thought that a technological invention would make me teary but Skype just did! We finally (thanks Heidi) connected with our family in Western Australia. We've been meaning to do it for ages and Heinrich's sister finally got us there! Heinrich's sister moved to Australia 12 (I think) years ago when she married her Australian boyfriend. We meet her two boys when they were really young and have never met her daughter. Miranda is just three weeks younger than Mickey. It was so awesome to connect on Skype. I can't tell you how amazing. We were able to go on a tour of her house and Miranda gave us a peek at all of her prized possessions. As Heidi cooked breakfast we chatted and got quick glimpses of the boys and their toys. Next time kids we'll sit and chat with you while your mom puts her feat up with a cuppa tea! Thanks to Skype our kids might actually be able to develop a relationship with their cousins that they might not have otherwise.
