Schmoopie turned 11 on Friday. I've reached the age where I don't really like my birthday because I feel old, and I like my kids' birthdays even less because they make me feel even older. Of course we like to celebrate their birthdays and make it a fun time. The big gift this year was a point and shoot digital camera (Boofis got one for her birthday too). It is amazing how fresh and creative they are with the photos they've taken.

Schmoopie is 11 and Kids with Cameras
Here is our 11 year olds' work from the last couple days.
This photo is interesting to me. Veep likes to collect rocks, shells, and sticks from hikes and on beaches. However, I have video of Schmoopie picking up the large rock in the upper left hand corner (the one with the round holes in it) on the rocky beach of one of my favorite breaks in Ventura when she was 1. I remember putting the rock in my pocket after she handed it to me, thinking it was a significant stone if for no other reason than that she picked it. I'm glad I kept it.
Lately Veep and I have worried about how she relates (or doesn't) to others. Looking at her photos has given me great reassurance that she is aware of the world around her and has her own vision.
She has made me look at our home with greater wonder.
These are her "100 paper cranes." On her way to 1000.
Bookshelf. This is her desktop on her laptop.
Including other photogs in action.
Happy 11th Schmoop!
