Summer @ the Theatres

One of the perks of being a teacher is having a long summer break, and I mean really long. A little short of three months. This is the time we over-worked, underpaid government employees take this time to unwind, and relax. Normally, my husband (who is also a teacher) and I take this chance to be on the road for that much awaited long driving. This summer, we did not go anywhere. We stayed home because my sister (who is also a teacher) and her family spent their summer break with us. The thing is, my sister has four kids -daughters- all younger then twelve. The moment I found out about my sister's plan to stay with us, I listed several fun -but inexpensive- activities for my three nieces (the fourth is only two months old).

I had pizza-making and baking on top of the list. At least this is something we can do as often as they get hungry -teehee. We did nail-painting, kite flying and we frequented the theaters. There's an outdoor theatre here at downtown Houston that is free, plus the earliest show in the movie threatre is always cheaper. My sister and I though grabbed this chance to see Broadway musicals and plays. The trick is securing the tickets real early to get really good seats!  Right now, the line up here at the local theatre in Houston is not as good as the ones at Boston. If you live anywhere in Boston, the place to secure your tickets is at Boston Opera House Tickets. Wang theatre is about to show Grease -one of my faves! Better check the tickets at Wang Theatre Tickets.  My nieces of course are bugging us to take them to any Justin Bieber concer. For this, the place to check is Air Canada Center Tickets. Geez, this summer is and will be pretty much spent on the theatres! :)

It sounds as if you have a fun-filled summer planned. I always enjoyed those long summer breaks as well, although I usually taught summer school to earn extra money.
