Internet Origami Lesson

We use FaceTime (like Skype) to chat to my mom 3 or 4 times a week, which is a great way to not feel so far apart and she gets to see Ebi-kun on a regular basis. In fact she sees more of him that the other grandchildren who only live an hour or so away!

Anyway, my step-sister and her family have just moved back to the UK after a 15 year stint in Greece, we have never actually met her kids in real life and Ebi-kun and A are the same age. They have been staying with my mom for the week so we got to chat a couple of times. A and Ebi-kun hit it off straight away and within minutes Ebi-kun was giving A a lesson on how to do origami. Mom has a stockpile of supplies but the book they had was all in Japanese, we have the same book here so Ebi-kun did step-by-step demonstrations for her.

I love how technology can bring us closer together. The next time we spoke, A was doing her spelling homework, so that turned out to be an international spelling bee!
