One day in August the boys went out to snap beans.   I can’t quite remember if we sent them out to do them, or if they offered to do it themselves.  Usually it is the former, but I think this time they were excited to do it for some reason [ask them why…I do not know].   😀   But one of the girls got some pretty cute pictures of them snapping those beans 😀



 Noah: “This  bean tastes weird”



 They look so serious…like they’re having a deep conversation.  Probably about the tractors they want for their birthdays.



“This is the way to do it!”


“You’re right!  It’s not so tiring!”




 “It poked me!”


 Snap, snap, snap…drop.


 “You know what I wanna be when I grow up?”


 “A bean farmer.”


 “Then I can have as many green beans as I want, like when we want it for a snack, or like, whenever we’re outside.”


 “Me too.  Can I do it wif you Noah?”




p.s.  this is a hold-you-over post 😉  I was uploading a million gajillion pictures and came across three more posts worth of pictures 😀   So here is bonus post no. 1.   190+ pictures are finally uploaded on the blog for our Florida post [and I  lost about 185 of them and Cassia almost had to perform CPR on me before I realized I could retrieve them again], so now we just need captions 😀
