Where does the time go?

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post.  Where does the time go???
Well, lots has changed since July... I did end up getting an administrative position
 at Dellview Elementary School as the Assistant Principal.  I was thrilled!!!!! I got a phone call at 9:00PM 
on a Monday night telling me to report to leadership training the next morning at 7:00AM.  Since then I have been running pretty fast to keep up.  I love it though!!! I am exactly where I am supposed to be!  

The second week of my new job, I went to drop Riley off at her school, to find out that there had been a fire the night before and they were being relocated to a different daycare for a couple of weeks.  All her teachers and friends also went to this new school so Riley was excited!  She thought it was so neat that mama and Riley both had "new schools" to go to every morning.  
In addition to Riley starting at her new school, she has also joined dance again.  I really didn't plan on enrolling her again after last year, and her apparent non-interest, but after the recital, she really wanted to be a
 part of it again.  The group she is now a part of has 2 performances a year so I am sure I will have plenty for your viewing pleasure soon...

I also took my mom and Riley to see Dora Live at the Majestic.  I wanted to take Riley because she still has an infatuation with Dora, and I wanted her to start having memories of going to the Majestic like I have from when I was young.  She absolutely LOVED it.  Hugh crocodile tears when it was time to go, and she is still talking about it.  The performance was at the end of July.  I can't wait to get another opportunity to take her to another kid friendly show.  

During my last couple of weeks of summer, I also tried to get a little home improvement done.  Here are some before and after shots.  I was pretty happy with how everything came out.  It will be awhile before I have time to do more.....
