Raise your hand if you remember floppy disks. *raises hand*
And, now, I'm talking the REAL floppy disks...the thin, black, floppy, papery square things that we used to use in computers before the smaller, black, sturdy square things that were the predecessor to the itty bitty SD cards we have now.
How about that green turtle that served as the cursor arrow on those archaic old computers? Remember those?
Or, or...OR!! How about when the school...the WHOLE DANG SCHOOL owned like 5 computers. TOTAL.
Our current household now houses more computers than the first computer lab I ever sat in.
Sheesh...here's another little tidbit that'll date me. Once upon a time, I believe somewhere in the Kriss Kross "Jump Jump" era, jean bib overalls were HOT. The bigger and baggier the better, and when you wore one of your straps off your shoulder? Well HOT DAMN! You were something else.
So, someone I know *ahem* had a $100 school clothes budget and I, I mean SHE, just HAD TO HAVE a pair of Guess Jeans biboveralls.
Goodbye budget, HELLO HOT BIBS!
Good gracious. What was I thinking.
Anyway, times change. Lead changes to graphite. Wood pencils to mechanical. Notebooks start coming in multi-subject bundles. Textbooks are downloaded onto tablets. School registration day now involves not only dropping off your school supplies, but also picking up your own personal, school loaned tablet.
Gone are the floppy disks of old...hello technology!!! And I've gotta say, I welcome it with open arms! Anything that can make my job as a mom easier and lighten the load (literally AND figuratively) for my kids?
Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium is one of those tools that helps with streamlining academics for your kiddo. Do you want to know something? I have no idea how to make a PowerPoint presentation. In this day and age, and I don't have a ding dang clue! I'm old enough that PowerPoint wasn't incorporated into my college learning experience.
Old as dirt.
