"There is no hope of us being more tech savvy than our kids." said Roy after I informed him that Sophie bought a movie on pay per view. In the 15 seconds it took for me to go outside, close the gate, and let the dog out, Sophie had bought 101 Dalmatians for $3. As Roy said, at least it wasn't 101 Dominatrix.
Sophie plays this game on the computer, often without help, and has no trouble navigating with the mouse as long as we turn off the right click.
Nowhere is her ability to use technology more apparent, however, than with the iPhone. She knows where the applications to color are, how to pull up and watch Cinderella, and she loves going through the music on my iPod. Her favorite ap, though, is the camera.
Here is a view of the world from my daughters perspective. (I have deleted the many photos where she covers the lens with her finger.)
In other news, our summer is progressing beautifully. Last night we went to a pool party at a friends house that did not disappoint. The kids - oh who am I kidding - we all had a blast splashing around in the pool, playing monkey in the middle and Sophie did so well that I think I'll put her into swimming lessons in July.
My hanging tomato plant is covered in yellow flowers and I have my first little green tomato beginning. I am so happy to have found a way to garden in my small space. We have enjoyed lettuce and fresh herbs; the mint is taking off in the container by the fence, and I think I still have time to put in a pepper plant. It's more than enough for us and there's always more to share with the neighbors.
We still have a couple of trips in the works - we're hoping to go to North Carolina in July to see the area where Roy's Grandma and her family are from, and then there's South Dakota in September to meet the newest addition to the Waltner clan, due to arrive in just a few weeks.
I'm giddy with anticipation for the bounty to come!
