Homemade pepperoni bread by The Amish Cook

By Lovina Eicher

This is the last week the children will be home all day. School doors open Tuesday, September 3. Where have all these summer months gone? Verena, 15, finished her 8th grade year last term so she will be home now to help me. Susan, 17, would like to get a full time job but I would like to teach her how to put together a dress, shirt, pants, etc. It makes it so much easier for me when they can cut out and sew their own clothes and help with the boys shirts and pants. It takes time and patience to teach them but feels rewarding once you see they can sew together their own dresses. Elizabeth, 19, finished a pair of  pants for Timothy last night. She sewed herself a new dress and Timothy a shirt and pants that they plan to wear on Labor Day to the family gathering at brother Amos’s.
