Skyping back to minnesota.

Thank goodness for Skype, so we can keep in contact with our families back in Minnesota! The connection isn't always great, but it works most of the time. Linna's grandparents in Minnesota and great-grandparents in Iowa love to sing to her, and Linna will either dance along or just listen! We try to connect with our parents and siblings every day, but I love seeing Linna's reaction to these people if she hasn't seen them in a couple days. She immediately recognizes their faces and voices, and points to them on the computer screen while smiling.

We were able to Skype with Linna's Great-Grandma and Grandpa Pollard last week on Great-Grandma Pollard's 80th birthday. Both AJ and my parents were also able to sing AJ "happy birthday" on his 28th Singapore and American birthday (we're 13 hours ahead) last week.
