This is a screenshot of a video I recorded in May 2005. Using our digital video camera (which was the size of a brick and required a mini-cassette), I recorded my niece as she and I played an online Sesame Street game in English. She thought it was hilarious, repeating the English words after me. She was 2.5 years old then. Now? She celebrates her 15th birthday next month, and speaks English very well on her own.
I rediscovered this video clip today as I converted some media files, and it reminds me that capturing these little mundane moments is so important! I’m so glad technology has made it easier and faster to do it, too. It’s good for the heart, and the memory bank!
