I recently ordered prints from our last eight years of living overseas (way too long of a time not to print photos, by they way.) As I was sifting through a couple thousand pictures trying to decide which images to print, I came across photos of activities that our son’s grandparents had planned. Every time I see those photos gratitude and relief wash over me because our son was still able to have a relationship and fun memories with his grandparents, even though we lived seven time zones away from them! Sure, it would have been nice to have them physically present more often, but when I look at my photos and can practically hear the squeals of delight, I know that his experience was no less special than anyone else’s; perhaps even unique!
So, in honor of long-distance families everywhere, here are some ideas to get your love and personality pushed through the barrier of miles (and maybe even sail past the oceans between you). Some of these are best initiated by doting grandparents, and some of these are great when proposed by families with kids.
