Last night The Groves partnered with the Houston Museum of Natural Science to bring the Discovery Dome, a portable full-dome theater that surrounds children with soaring spaceships!
 
 
Children were emersed into the Secret Lives of Stars and went on Earth's Wild Ride to learn more about science and space. 
 
 
 
In addition to the dome shows, the event included hands on activity stations.
 
 
 
 
The "Make-It" Butterfly Life Cycle station modeled each stage of the butterfly's life cycle, explored through metamorphosis.
 
 
 
 
 
The Investigation Station had more than just the kids interested with Venomous vs. Poisonous where residents examined specimens and explored the differences between the terms venomous and poisonous. 
 
 
In between the shows and activities children created their own "Cosmic Stars".
 
 
 
 
This space themed snack came together with rice krispie treats, star shapped cookie cutters, frosting and sprinkles!
 
 
 
 
And what goes best with Cosmic Stars? Cosmic Brownies, Moon Pies and rock candy of course!
 
 
We can't thank HMNS enough for coming out and creating an event where kids can learn while having fun. Be sure to check the event calendar for more information coming soon on our next event with HMNS!

Hello Groves Residents!
    Since coming on board in early June 2018 I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know residents here in the community. Before I could revamp the Lifestyle Program I knew I needed to get a pulse of the community to see what was missing and what I could bring to the table. Every move I make I take into consideration what the community will look like 5 and 10 years down the road. When creating programs and policies for the community I strive to make sure each step I take is on the foundation of the step I have built before. That being said I knew one of the most vital elements to communication was the community website. A feature of this website that I am excited to start using is the blog. From Homeowner tips and tricks to "What's Going on at The Groves", this blog will be your resource for everything Lifestyle in your community. 
 
I hope this becomes a place you come to grow with the Groves!
