Other happenings...









I haven't updated my blog lately because most of the time, I am only able to upload when Riley is with her dad. Since that doesn't happen very often, updating my blog takes a back seat :)
Easter was a blast. This is the first year that Riley "got" the Easter Egg Hunting thing... Well...it kind of took until the third hunt, but she finally got the gist.
We had a wonderful Easter...Friday, I got home from Cincinnati where I had just seen Catherine perform her Master's Recital...(more to come...). Saturday, we went over to my dad's for a bar-b-que. The whole family was back together, which doesn't happen very often these days. April, Muke, Brian, the kids, Scott, Jen, and Riley's favorite, Hailey... We had a great time and colored eggs and hunted them too...
Sunday morning Riley got up, walked into the living room, and brought me the basket "her bunny" brought her. She was so excited.... Then it was off to church and then to mom's. We hunted again and Riley did very well.
Then it was back to a fun filled week of work :(

April 8th, Catherine had the most beautiful recital you could have ever heard! I am so proud of her. It was SO good to get away and finally see where she lives and spends her day to day activities. I haven't been to ANY of her "home towns" except Denton, so going to Cincinnati was a great opportunity for me. I left Riley with my dad and her dad so she was safe, but missed dearly!!! Here are come pictures of the trip.

$45 a month for classes, $50 for shoes, $70 for costume...

Watching Riley in her dance class....
PRICELESS

At least we are getting our money's worth...I think after this year, the teacher will probably up the rates based on the amount of work she had to do with Riley...what she doesn't know is.........

I don't think we are going to continue dance classes at this time :)
