Snapping Beans

Our sweet friends brought us a big box of garden fresh green beans the other day.  Yeah!  We've been pretty busy and I hadn't had a chance to even snap them yet...  John knew I was planning to do it tonight, but just running short of time again.  So he announced that after dinner everyone was going to snap beans.  The weather turned cool after an evening rain, so he set up chairs for everyone on the back patio and got the buckets and bowls and he taught the boys how to snap beans while I finished cleaning up dinner.  Then I joined them on the patio and it was really so much fun to work together as a family!  There was just this tremendous feeling of teamwork and knowing we would reap the benefit of our labor together for dinner one evening soon.  I am so grateful for my sweet hubby and my precious boys and the way they help me.  I loved spending those memorable moments together.  It reminded me a lot of snapping beans with my grandma on the porch at her farm...  there is so much to treasure in the simple things of life.

I'm getting anxious to get my new computer so that I can upload some photos...  hopefully soon.
