Zoë vs. the Beet



There once was this beet.
Beet1

that a little girl named Zoë wanted.
She thought she could pull it out with one hand.

It would not budge.
Then she tried pulling with two.

She pulled with all her might.

Guess who won?
Beet-out
{Yes, she ate it.}
Zoë is a force to be reckoned with once she sets her sights on something.

Good for Zoe! She can be anything she chooses and win over any odds (or in this case a stubborn beet). Hope it tasted really great.

Nezzy said...

Sweet Zoe beat the beet!!! Woohoo...and even ate it too. Those have been some of the largest veggies I've ever seen.

As always, your pictures are in a class by themselves!

God bless and enjoy this beautiful day!!! :o)

She's more than adorable! Have you heard of the book 'The Enormous Turnip'? You need to buy it and read it to her, she'd LOVE it! :)

Actually, I just searched and found a smiliar version called 'the giant turnip' on youtube...
