Celebrate Prom or Homecoming In Style


High School Graduation is well underway, but it's never too early to start planning Homecoming! Help your teen celebrate 2018-2019 Homecoming in style. 

School dances are important events for teens, especially when it comes to senior prom! Months of preparation go into finding the right outfit, date, picture and dinner plans. If you don't remember...being a teen can be pretty stressful! Prom and homecoming allow teens the freedom to dress up, celebrate and socialize with their closest friends.

The addition of transportation to a prom or homecoming experience is definitely something to think about. Here are three benefits of a party bus or limousine rental for prom for parents and students to consider!

2017 Back-To-School and School Supply Drives In And Around Austin


The average costs for school supplies every year is $35 which creates an extra burden for already challenged families as well as for teachers, who often spend their own money buying missing supplies for their classrooms and students.

In order to ease the burden of both families and teachers, school districts that are continuously facing tighter budgets, are trying to outsource the financial obligation by requesting that parents help provide  these supplies.

Here is a list of Back-to-School Programs and School-Supply Drives in and around Austin.

We Love Our School

This is our first Kindergarten experience and so far we love our school. Teachers are great, facilities are safe, drop-off and pick-up is not bad at all (we expected worse). Plus, the school does lots of fun stuff that makes kids (at least our Kindergartner) look forward to going to school even more:

Queen for a Day - Kindergarten Fun


Our school does that fun thing where Kindergartners are “Queen for a Day” or “King for a Day”. They get to wear a crown and the entire class draws the queen or king. The teacher binds the drawings into a book and the queen or king can take the book home with her/him.

The book is adorable and we got a good laugh out of it. Plus, there are quite some little Picassos in her class, check it out.
