We are on Day 4 of Dakota being out of the country and so far, so good. We've had our tear filled moments (especially at night when they are tired) but overall, things are clicking right along.
Friday, Dakota was able to talk with them a couple times on the phone and Saturday and Sunday they were able to talk via Skype which really, really helped. They like being able to see her and she has been showing them things and even gave them a tour of her hotel room. I honestly believe that this whole thing is being made easier thanks to skyping. I'm not so much having that feeling that I will be needing hair dye and wrinkle cream once this week is behind us. :)
Kelton was really happy to realize that in 4 days Dakota will be on her way home. I had a feeling that the anticipation was far, far worse that the actuality of her being gone.
