Some pics from my new hometown

I haven't posted since my big move. I thought I'd share a few pictures from our new hometown, New Braunfels, Texas. We moved to our new home on June 1st and have spent the last two months settling in and getting to know the area. We are daily finding new restaurants and things to do. I can't believe the options this town has for entertainment and food. Being a major vacation destination, we have many great restaurants and free live music every night of the week. I know when summer is over things will be a little different, but for right now, I am loving all the activity. For someone who has lived in the "middle of nowhere" all her life, I feel I have died and gone to heaven.
One thing we have been doing since we got here is taking all kinds of dance lessons. We have already taken swing dance lessons (still struggling with this but will continue to practice), polka lessons, country lessons, and next, I think we will try salsa. So far, the polka lessons have been the most fun. We are trying to prepare for the giant Wurstfest in October. I have heard that over 100,000 people will attend during the 10 day festival. Can't wait!!
School starts for me on August 10th since I am a new teacher to the district. Believe it or not, I can't wait to get started!! I am looking forward to meeting new people and getting involved.
