How does a tight family stay close when employments pulls them far apart?
How does a close knit family stay close when one adult child and grandchildren move across the county for their dad's job? My son-in-law has joined the Army and is going to be stationed across the county from our home, relocaqting my daughter and granddaughter. We want to keep close.
Today with "free" long distance on cell phones and cable service, calling is a great way to stay in touch. Skype is also a great way to see and talk to family who live far away. I have found that Facebook is a great way to just keep up with everyone all at once, and you get to share pictures and daily occurrences. Keep them close whichever way is the most convenient for you. I still e-mail, but I found with Facebook that I am in contact with more of my relatives than any other way. :-)
