Wow! This brought back a memory.
The kids and I are enjoying root beer floats and rocky road bars while we watch Race to Witch Mountain on DVD. (We haven't watched it before.) I suddenly remembered to back when I was in 4th grade or so. Our nice home teacher brought his VCR to our house and we had root beer floats and watched one of the Superman movies. I thought the VCR was the coolest invention ever and didn't ever think I'd ever actually own one. : ) Okay, I'm going back to the movie now.
