Healthy Zucchini Banana Bread

I just finished up teaching two classes at the local community college for upper elementary grades.  The classes combined a lot of fun science things into a few short days.  While it was fun to get out (wearing real clothes) and feeling appreciated (a student gave me this flower), I missed my little kids!  IMG_5932.jpeg

So, we’ve been doing a bunch of the experiments together now!  IMG_2396.jpeg

Then we started experimenting with zucchini’s! 🙂  I am on a mission to eat them all up from our garden!  This is a good one:  IMG_1155.JPG
