We’re settling into a new rhythm here at home. Our daughter seems to be adjusting well to college, and I get excited when we receive little updates from her.
Here are some helpful posts I’ve found around the Web lately.
Lori shares 10 Ways to Dial into Your Child’s Heart.
Susan gives advice on How to See the Sweetness in the Stress of Caring for Two Generations.
Ayanna lists 5 Simple Steps to Becoming a Better Wife.
I’m always looking for a new recipe to take to breakfast for our Sunday School class. This Croissant Breakfast Egg Casserole is what I’ll be trying next!
I also want to try more sheet pan dinners. Both this Sheet Pan Pasta Bake with Chicken and Kale and this Sheet Pan Pesto Chicken with Asparagus, Tomatoes, and Walnuts will be on our menu soon.
I read one non-fiction book in August, but it was fairly long. First: Sandra Day O’Connor by Evan Thomas was a very interesting read. Now that I have this author’s perspective, I’d like to read a couple of other books about the first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
I finished two fiction books, both by Laura Frantz. Lately, I seem to find an author I like and read all his/her books in a row. Both The Colonel’s Lady and Courting Morrow Little were excellent reads.
We’ll be getting lots of house projects done this weekend, including updating and rearranging our younger daughter’s bedroom. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

The breakfast casserole looks delicious! I’m just not sure that all of my children would eat it, but maybe I’ll fix it anyway. 😉
I also enjoyed the post about being a better wife. I always need to hear advice like that.
Ha – I don’t think either of my girls would eat the breakfast casserole, but I’m fairly sure the adults in our Sunday School will enjoy it 😉
I’m so eager to hear EVERYTHING re: this college adjustment!!! I know every child is different, but how often do you hear from her???
We text almost daily – although some days it’s very brief!! – and typically FaceTime on Sundays. Neither one of us are big phone talkers, so we’ve only talked on the phone once. She much prefers FaceTime, so I go with that. Whatever format allows me to connect with her works for me!! 🙂
