THOUGHTS FOR THIS WEEK
Alrighty, SUMMER IS HERE!!! If you’re still looking for summer day camps in Houston – doncha worry! Check out my HUGE database of over 200 camps at www.DayCampsHouston.com. There are camps for every child and every interest, including arts, sports, cooking, international cultures, academics, fitness, science, and much more. Check it out – you’ll LOVE it! Summer also means swim season – I have information below about our city pools, but PLEASE do me a favor: practice good pool safety! I have already heard of several near drownings and there have already been FOUR drownings in Harris County (see that story here). Watch your kiddos and PLEASE make sure they can swim before you get near a pool or hot tub. There are free lessons being offered by the city; details on those are here. Also, I’ve heard that Katchakid offers some great products to make your home pool safer.
Houston is a great city and it’s fun to be a tourist in your own town (which is what I encourage year-round, but summer is an especially good time to explore!) and I’ve got info on how to kick that off today. My VIDEO PICK this week will get you excited! Stay tuned to GISH PICKS for information on all kinds of summer ideas: outdoors fun, movies, reading programs, games, museums, and more. I’ll keep you moving and grooving all summer long. Kick off your summer this Saturday, June 1 at Miller Outdoor Theatre’s annual “Accordion Kings and Queens” show – I’ll be there and would love to see YOU! And here’s a great way to close out your summer: head to Galveston’s East Beach on Saturday, August 24 for the annual AIA Sandcastle Competition. I’m smelling salt water already!
