  2. Caroline, I wonder if using their gmail accounts to email each other might be a better way for them to communicate virtually. Email writing, letter writing, and blogging are all a bit different skills but I think maybe emailing and letter writing might be more similar. All are skills they will need in the future! Let me know if you want to discuss this further. I am happy to help!
