We are probably the last people in the universe to find out about Skype, but I am glad we did! For anyone else who may be clueless about it, its a free service that you can download from skype.com and you can make free Skype to Skype calls on your computer. What makes it even cooler is that if you have a webcam and the person you are calling also has one, you can see each other too. This has come in very handy for us to talk to family and friends back home. The kids enjoy being able to see and talk to their grandparents, and vice versa.
