One cause that is extremely close to my heart is the Bikes For Kids program our firm is working on. Every child deserves the opportunity to ride a great bike, and we want to open up that possibility. We’ll be giving away one bike, helmet, and lock each week to a deserving child. The contest runs through August 22, and nominating a child is simple. Rules For a child to be nominated, they must meet the following criteria: • 5–15 years old • Must live within the Pasadena Independent School District OR if the person nominating the child is a VIPmember, the child will be eligible Process 1. Find a Nominee Do you know of a child who has had a positive impact in the community? Maybe a child who persevered in the face of adversity? If you know such a child, nominate them! 2. Fill Out Our Form Head on over to texas and fill out the form. 3.WinnerWinner, Chicken Dinner We will review all the nominees each week and select a winner.

Happy Second of July! Yes, you heard that right. While we celebrate the Fourth of July as our nation’s Independence Day, the resolution that freed us was approved on July 2, 1776. John Adams was so sure we’d celebrate the Second of July that he wrote to his wife, “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.” The resolution may have been approved on July 2, but the Declaration of Independence wasn’t adopted until July 4, 1776. Thus, we have the Fourth of July, not the Second. But the day we celebrate our liberation from tyranny is not nearly as important as the people we celebrate it with. By far, the best part of the Fourth of July is spending time with family. We get so busy throughout the year that life becomes more about rushing from one place to the next than investing in deep and meaningful relationships. Why do we accept this as the American way? Instead of trying to connect with family and friends, we compete to be the person who

works the most. We have a limited amount of emotion to invest in any given day. If we pour ourselves into our work, something else has to suffer. “Seeing the night light up with the red, white, and blue of America is a sight that brings a smile to my face.” The first casualty is usually our spouse, children, or even our health. What if instead of diving into work for 50 weeks and taking two off for a big vacation, we tried mini vacations with our family throughout the year? Just as a good marriage needs a regular date night, families need regular getaways. That’s why I love the Fourth of July; it’s a perfect time to recharge and invest in what really matters. The food and fireworks sure help, too. What is more American than firing up the grill with your family and throwing a slab of beef on it? The same goes for fireworks. I have so many great memories of shooting off fireworks over the San Bernard
