Podee Video

I feel like I am just a tad old to be part of this internet revolution. When I was in graduate school I took a course on Chaucer. I loved this class; it is the A I am most proud of (a 90.2% to be exact and that I still remember 12 years later). In this class we posted thoughts to our classmates as part of assignments. The computer screen we saw was rudimentary. All we did was type as if on a typewriter and then sent it. This was so bare bones that we had to use underscoring to indicate a title, e.g. _Canterbury Tales_. Yet, we thought we were cutting edge; maybe we were.

I include these ramblings to illustrate how inept I feel with all this technology stuff. My dad and Linda gave us a video camera for Christmas (which we received the first of December so we could start using it). I am now just figuring out what to do with the videos we've collected in 2 months time. It really has taken me several hours of playing around to get to this point of just uploading a video. And, truth be told, H is the one who got me to this point. I still would not be here if it weren't for her. Jon & Karen had to then help me out with the imovie program. Maybe it will be easier from here on out.

So, we hope you enjoy our first attempt at showing you clips of the babies. This one is of Elliott drinking out of a Podee bottle for the first time. It was taken on 2/2/08. [The girls have not yet caught on to the Podee bottle.]
