Dreams of Beans

Around Mother's Day Conner brought home a bean start. 
He'd begun it at school and then brought it home to tend it and grow it into a plant.
With the bean came a dream.  He wanted to grow it into a big plant in the middle of our kitchen table,
and then when the beans came, he and I would sit at the table together and pick our beans and eat them.

I found a free mug to put it in and we've watched it grow and even had our neighbors keep it watered for us while we were gone.
And yesterday, he picked a large bean and snapped it in half and asked me which piece I wanted.
I think it's the best bean I've ever tasted.
