Many expats are concerned about being away from family and grandchildren. In a way, I am almost lucky that I didn’t live close to my children before moving to Panama, so this wasn’t a big adjustment. Since we use more video chats now rather than regular phone calls, sometimes I felt like I actually see more of my kids than before.

But, I certainly look forward anxiously to visits and time in person with my family. It is even more important now that I also have a grandson. Children grow and change so fast that he is almost like a new person every time I see him!

Of course no blog post from California would be complete without some pictures of my grandson!

There are more things to photograph and talk about, but at the moment I am keeping busy doing things with the family. Stay tuned. I will get back to posting more soon!

  1. Beautiful little man you got there!!
    Yes it is very different now with the video chat capabilities…i talk to my sons that way so often..and with texting now sometimes i feel they aren’t really on their own enough and muddling through some situations on their own! Remember when we were young adults who only called once a week or less because it was so expensive…and then you didn’t tell your parents much because you had to make it quick?? Lol…those days are sure gone!!!!
