Oregon Trail

I picked Cole up from school today. On the way home, he was telling me about his day. He said that next quarter he's taking Art instead of Microsoft Windows. MICROSOFT WINDOWS. He's in sixth grade and he's taking Microsoft Windows. When I was in sixth grade, we took Math. And Reading. I remember nothing of computers. Except I do remember we were able to go to the computer lab once in awhile and play Oregon Trail. Or Wheel of Fortune. Or I might have booted up that floppy disk and G&G T's...hard to remember.

I told him he's welcome to use my computer to do word processing any time he wants...but he's still not allowed on the internet (another blog entry for another day)!

oh, how I loved Oregon Trail. :) I think we could play it at the end of word processing class, maybe 6th grade or so?

Oregon Trail!! I forgot about that. That's funny. It's also very good that Microsoft Window is available for kids that young, I think.

I was always chose to be a doctor when I played Oregon Trail. And I always took a ferry over the rivers. How do I remember that???
