READY FOR A GREAT WEEKEND?!
Summer, summer, summer. Let’s free associate about summer. Grab a real (or imaginary!) ice cream cone and sit down, enjoy the sun…and soak in the summer! When I think about summer, I think about camps as a kid (the overnight ones in our family were Camp Monterey for me and Camp Country Lad for my brother). I also think about day camps and – of course – my guide to Houston ones, THE SUMMER BOOK® ONLINE: A GUIDE TO HOUSTON DAY CAMPS AND CLASSES FOR KIDS AND TEENS. It’s got over 200 day camps, all searchable by age, subject matter, area of town, and much more!
I also think about free symphony, ice houses, neighborhood swim teams, heat, mosquitos, longer days, libraries, and road trips. And I think about how I (finally!) have more time for hometown explorations. I’ll share more about that in a few weeks. In the meantime, let Lynn Wyatt be your tour guide in this week’s VIDEO PICK, a charming CNN interview with her about her fave spots. Lynn is a plucky, beautiful, all-Texas gal and she’s got some wonderful ideas!
By the way, speaking of plucky gals – how about that Wonder Woman?! What a fun movie about a powerful woman. I loved it. There are several articles about it online but I think my favorite was this one – about how it’s beyond just fun, it’s a statement since it’s a film made about women, by women, for women (and the men who love them!). Grab a girlfriend, the kids, the hubby and go have fun with this perfect summer film. Gal Godot – Wonder Woman – is a former Israeli soldier, a motorcycle enthusiast, a martial arts expert, and a mom (she was 5 months pregnant when doing some of the filming!) By the way, on October 21, 2016 – the 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Wonder Woman – that character was designated by the United Nations as its Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls, a gesture intended to promote gender equality and empowerment of women and girls.

Have a great weekend, love one another, please share this, and please go IGNITE YOUR LIFE!
