Our 10th anniversary trip to NYC

We celebrated our 10th anniversary Aug 15/16 by taking Kyra to NYC for her first visit. We had a great time. We ate pizza at John's on 45th Ave; went up to the top of the ESB; visited the American Girl store, saw the outside of the TODAY show, had dinner at Heartland Brewery in Times Square, went to Cold Stone and finished the night off at Chevy's. We stayed at the Times Square Hilton, so we were right in the middle of everything. It was so much fun!

The bride arrives and the flower girls run to her- Kyra and Noelani.

I think this is my favorite picture that we took.... can't wait to see the photographer's pictures!

Kyra was a great flower girl!

My new role- I'm a teacher!

I will be teaching Financial Literacy (pg 34 of the PDF link) at Francis Scott Key High School in Carroll County starting in August! It's a full time position- I'll be teaching for 2 quarters, and as of now, will only teach there through the end of January. The principal there is great, and I know if something comes up that I can teach, he'll find something for me to keep me for the remainder of the year. If nothing else, I'll get another contract for 1/2 the school year next August. If I don't get to stay, then I'll go back to subbing in Howard County, and will be able to do any long-term subbing if there's anything available.

I've always said that I'll end up next year where I am supposed to be- and I believe that. I know I'm going where I am supposed to go.

I'm very excited, and although it's a long drive, it's a great opportunity for me to get teaching experience, have my OWN classes and learn some great material that I can use in the future, no matter where I go.

Guess the singer

Today we were in the van and "Dancing in the Dark" was on the radio. I asked her who was singing.

1st guess- U2.
2nd guess- Prince.
3rd guess- Jimmy (Buffett).
4th and final guess- Bruce.

She knows who our faves are (Prince belongs to Uncle Todd). Pretty funny!

the last dance recital- 6/13/09

I think this is the last dance recital for Kyra- she decided to do soccer from now on. It was sad knowing that she won't be dancing anymore, but she didn't look forward to dance like she did to soccer. I think this is the right decision, but I'll miss her in her little outfits!

Kyra will play on the Select "A" team next year- she tried out last month and made it!! She's very excited for the new season to start. Unfortunately, she'll be playing against some of her teammates from the Comets! But she is still looking forward to making new friends and seeing her old ones on the field.
