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!
