Houston Happenings | August

August! It’s officially time for you to start transitioning from the relaxation of summer to the routines and schedules we know and love. That’s right :: It’s back-to-school time.

Not sure when school starts in your district? Don’t fret, double check!! Head over to our comprehensive list of school calendars, broken down by district. We’ve highlighted first and last days of school to help ease some of the stress!

As always, Houston Moms is here to offer advice and tips, so let us share some insights, from one mom (well, more like 30 moms) to another. We share ways to prepare for school, some meals that make the transition a little easier and how to celebrate the milestone of a new school year in a convenient post!

And if you have a little time during your busy Back-to-School prep, maybe a road trip to close out the summer is perfect for your family! Lucky for us all, there are lots of Texas destinations within a few short hours of H-Town! Check out our Texas Travel guide to find beautifully scenic and awesomely fun end of summer locations!

It’s GO TIME, mamas! Let’s do this!

Bring on AUGUST!

Groove into August with some amazing events:
