Beets...

Yesterday, we pulled some beets from our garden...which is past the clothesline. My fingers were stained purple for a day from chopping them up.
Hannah and Olivia began swimming lessons (this is their 3rd year) this week. Rob took the girls in the morning. Then, in the afternoon, is swim team...which we have decided to be a part of for the first time. Laps. Laps. Laps. Freestyle, backstroke, breast stroke and butterfly, too. One day, after swim team practice, we stayed for "open swim" and I swam 4 laps, then tuckered out....
My niece, Natalia, is now a month old...tomorrow is her baptism!
7 pretty girls sitting on the steps after church!

Sweet beets! We love beets. My husband makes buttered beets and also cans them. He's the can man!! lol! Your sweet niece Natalia is the most gorgeous baby ever! Well, apart from my own ;)... We love to swim here, too. Emma was on her 7th grade swim team. Have a blessed summer Martha!!

I love coming over to see what fun things you're up to and this is no exception - your daughters are beautiful and nice to have the pool nearby to enjoy!

I have grown to like beets and I bet I would love them if I had them fresh from the garden. Thanks, as always, for the eye candy!
