Retired

We have finally retired our dinosaur of a video camera.

No more:

- 8 mm tapes.

- time getting the tape in the correct spot.

- accidently  taping over a previous event.

- transferring taped events to DVD (oh wait we weren't so good at that anyway)

- large camera and camera bag

This weekend we played with the new camera at Morgan's gymnastics meet.  The video isn't great as we were getting used to the camera but  it was so nice to come home and download the video right to the computer. It was so easy... easy to share with friends and family and easy to burn to a DVD to have for future viewing.

The video is of Morgan's routines on beam, floor, and vault.  Lance didn't get video of Morgan's bar routine. She had started her bar routine and slipped off the low bar and had to start her routine over. When she fell Lance got a little flustered and forgot to keep taping her routine.

Morgan had a great meet this weekend. She placed 2nd on floor and beam, 3rd on vault, 8th on bars, and 5th overall for her age group.

So fun to finally SEE her perform! LOVED the video! Thanks for sharing.

We aren't in love with our video camera right now either, and it's not that old.

Awesome job Morgan! I am so glad we finally got to see you perform at least once! And remember we still have our "ancient" dinosaur video camera in case you ever miss yours! I can't decide if I really need a new one though.
