Nice job - that's basically what Lightroom is about - taking the RAW files and making them look the way you wanted the picture to look in the first place.
Basically, the RAW files capture more data than can be displayed by the monitor in terms of dynamic range, so you use Lightroom to get it to look right and correct color and white balance and all that good shit.
One thing to try is to get some RAW shots where you have a lot of highlight/shadow contrast (like a bright window and a dark room) and experiment with the highlight/shadow and clarity enhancements to pull up the shadows and pull down the highlights to show more detail (unless you want blown-out highlights, that's definitely a thing you could do).
Another thing to check out is the brush adjustment tool in Lightroom, which lets you selectively apply edits. This can be very useful when you have things like people's faces that are under-exposed in a shot but it's otherwise good.
Anyhow, looks solid. Use it more and you'll start to get a workflow down and learn what settings you need to get your personal style (like I use clarity, highlights, shadows, exposure, vibrance but almost never touch saturation until I start using color correction/processing filters).
