This Week in Houston: August 19-25, 2019

It’s time to plan for the week ahead in Houston: August 19-25, 2019! There are so many places to go and sites to see around town! And, the daytime events should see lighter crowds as the last of the public schools are heading back in session this week. What are you looking forward to? Here is what is immediately on deck but be sure to check out the complete GHM Calendar to keep up with all the comings and goings around town.

What We’re Reading This Week

Great reads from around the web that made us stop scrolling, sit back, and enjoy a quick read. 1 Rethinking How Students With Dyslexia Are Taught To Read 2 How to Love Being a Mom (When You Feel Inadequate) 3 The first rule of sports (and all) parenting: Don’t speak The goal of silence wasn’t to prevent conversation. It was to give my daughter space to initiate it. “Don’t speak” really meant “listen first.”  4 Carnegie medal winner slams children’s book publishers for ‘accessible’ prose Use big words if you want kids to know big words. 5 Trump Is Said to Ask: Can We Buy Greenland?

FREE Museums with BOA Card

Do you have a BOA Card (Bank of America)? You could be getting a great museum discount. I think this deal falls squarely into the thrill I feel for finding a good deal – not so much that I geek out over museums. Okay, I definitely geek out over museums. It is $25 per adult to go to our science museum (and if all the kids want to see are the stinkin’ dinosaurs it can be a hard pill to swallow!). Many of our museums do offer free entrance options. However, many of the time windows are later which, with kids, make it an ‘event most likely to be canceled.’ Which, brings us to this awesome deal: Free admission to over 100 museums nationwide if you show any Bank of America card and ID. You need to present your BOA card and photo ID on the first full weekend of every month for one free general admission. Houston Museums Included In Houston, it includes the Children’s Museum Houston and the Museum of Fine Arts. This will save you $12 per BOA card carrying person at the children’s museum and $17 at the art museum (kids 12 and under are always
