It’s back to school time! Can you believe how fast this summer went? I have to confess: when June started, I thought, “Ugh. This is going to be one long, hot summer.” It was definitely hot, but looking back, it doesn’t seem so long.
I also have another confession. I’ve been working on a little “side project” this year:
Last Tuesday, I had my 3rd (and final) daughter! I’m excited to introduce you to her for a number of reasons, the main one being that she is the cutest little baby born since my last cute little baby was born. Also, because this pregnancy really took it’s toll on me physically (tired, sick, tired of being sick, etc.) so I’m glad to be feeling normal again and hopefully I can pick back up with keeping you up to date on all the great things Katy has to offer your family.
If you have emailed me or messaged me since January, I probably didn’t get back to you. It was survival mode around here. Now, I’m feeling mentally back to normal. Physically, I’ll be back to normal in a few weeks.
So, with all of that said, let’s see what’s happening this week:
For bus schedules for the 2017-2018 school year, go here.
The last day of the 2017 season at Typhoon Texas is September 24. Because y’all are so awesome, they have dropped the General Admission ticket to $18 for the remainder of the season. This is a huge discount! The summer isn’t over yet, so be sure to get your tickets here to enjoy the last few weeks of one amazing summer.

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!
