Gosh. I still feel like I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. BUT, I have a full week of posts planned, so that should keep me on track I’ve decided to streamline some things, so you will be seeing weekly features…a lot like this post that happens every week.
Let me say it again (I’d should from the roof tops if I could!), I am so appreciative of you sticking with me! I love hearing from you about how this blog helps you. My #1 purpose has always been to give you ideas of how to engage with your family in meaningful ways. I’m not a super creative person, and always need ideas. This helps me out as much as it helps you. Thank you for reading, and thank you for getting involved in our community!

Have an event coming up? Be sure to email me so I can share it! (Tamara@katymomsblog.com) I do filter events somewhat. If it’s not family-friendly, it’s not likely I’ll share it….and I like to be upfront about that That’s why you won’t see every single event happening in Katy this week in this post. But, if you feel like it would be a good fit, let me know!
