First day of school

My kids say the darndest things...


Background: We were discussing the Space Race during the Cold War with JFK.

Me: "So JFK was determined to get a sateilte into space before the Soviet Union."
Student 1: "You mean there were no satelites?!"
Me: "Yes, we didn't have cell phones, or tivo."
Student 2: "WHAT DID THOSE PEOPLE DO!?"
Student 3: "They read a book."
Me: "VERY GOOD STUDENT 3."

Clearly, my children can not imagine a world without their electronics.
