Back to school takes on a different meaning as college students return to school. As just the two of us sat in church last Sunday morning I couldn’t help but wonder where the years have gone. Since we were greeters, we were seated as the service was ready to begin in the back with the young families. After a baptism, the song Find Your Wings by Mark Harris was played. How appropriate as I was reflecting on the past twenty-three years as we sat amongst the young families. (I might have even had a tear or two as the song was played.) Emily and I also had another experience this week that I will share next week.

We sold the first load of hogs out of the group of pigs that arrived the week we had school children visit in May.
Snickers even looks a little sad this week. She misses her Emily!
The cooler week made me feel like baking in the morning. This is one of my family’s favorite ways to use zucchini. Today I am sharing a recipe from one of my mom’s friends.
Grease and flour three pans. (I actually use a large one – the Pampered Chef stone loaf pan and a pan that measures 3 1/2 ” x 7 1/2″. Bake at 350 degrees. (45 minutes for the smaller pan and 1 hr. for the larger pan.) Turn out of pan and cool on wire rack. This also freezes well, but seldom makes it to the freezer at our house!
Have a great weekend!
