Boys and Beans

We recently had a friend drop off a bag full of green snap beans.... a mean a HUGE bag!

It's actually a GREAT deal she was sharing with me. A 13 gallon trash bag full of green beans a local company called "seconds". Some were small and others had marks that had to be trimmed off.

I have to admit that I was a little overwhelmed with the big task of preparing and storing all those beans. Thankfully I had help:)

They really were a big help! And I loved their helpful attitudes and all the skills they were using;)

And the reason it was just boys this morning was because Brian had the girls! They had rushed Lydia to the doctor to check out a wound that Saturday morning. She is fine:) Thankfully they just put on a tight "band-aid" to close up the wound. Never a dull moment at our house;)

Poor Lydia. I'm glad she's ok.
