Our vacation plans this summer aren’t as extravagant as some other years but I’m making sure the kids and I squeeze in some fun before school starts. Rob has to stay behind due to some work obligations but I know for sure that he and the kids are going to be on Skype each night the week we are gone.
Five days is a long time for one of us to be away from the rest of the family so we make sure to stay connected through telephone of course but Skype chat offers such a better communication experience. Skype has gotten us through other situations too. Remember a couple years ago when Rob was working hours from home and sleeping at my parents. We would chat each night about what was going on and he was able to say goodnight to the kids.
We aren’t new to Skype but are finding new ways to incorporate it into our lives. Watching Rob’s initial reaction when I send him a picture of Shae and Shaun doing something fun is worth using Skype Messaging to send files. All the different features come with different pricing structures, one is sure to fit any budget. Keep it simple and free with Skype to Skype chat or add Skype Premium to conference the entire family to plan the next big reunion. Figure out what’s going to work for you.
How are you staying connected this summer?
