Our grandchildren are growing up so fast. Two of them just had birthdays and two others are coming up in the Fall. I'm so glad that we all have digital camcorders in our family. If we miss the party, we know that we can watch the recording and it's just as if we were there.
When our kids were young we had an 8mm video camera. We had to have huge flood lights with it and a long cord as well. The whole process was clumsy. Now with digital ones they are all battery operated and you can go everywhere with them and take videos no matter what the environment.
These special times are so precious and as everyone grows up and older, those old movies are even more special. If you don't own one yet, I hope that you put a video camera on your list of things to get soon. They keep our treasures safe.
