This post is for a few of my Texas readers, but I encourage all of my readers to check out my “Summer Reading Programs” post. And have you checked out Baby Cheapskate’s 10 Ways to Have Fun This Summer for $1 or less?

For all my fellow Houston area readers – Christina Flanagan’s tremendous resource list at has transformed from a printable list to a mom-friendly website! The highlight of her site is the comprehensive list of where “Kids Eat Free” in Houston, organized by day of the week.
Also, I just found the Kids Activity Queen, a Houston mom who blogs about kids activities in Houston and the author of the book “100+ Activities for Houston Kids”. You’ve got to check her blog out for live updates on what’s new in Houston to do with your kids!

HoustonSAHM is a great resource for all moms in Houston. Check out their detailed Events Calendar. And did you know that they post Weekly Lesson Plans for three different age groups? What a great way to keep things from getting boring at your house this summer!

Lea Ann just told me about a new site called Art & Seek. It’s a great resource for finding all kinds of family activities in the North Texas region. Thanks for sharing, Lea Ann!
