A white picket fence surrounds a walkway that leads to a columned, wrap-around porch adorned with white wicker furniture. Once visitors pass this scene and enter the doors of the turreted, Victorian house of Revel Manor, their eyes are greeted with elegant furnishings and crystal and silver decorations that transport them to another age. While weddings, luncheons, and tea parties take place in the main house, guests stay at the original carriage house, which has been converted into a master suite with a queen bed, a downstairs bedroom with a daybed and trundle, and an upstairs bedroom with two twin beds.
At Willow Creek Equestrian Center, acres of indoor and outdoor riding space await aspiring equestrians who are eager to learn how to properly command a steed. The center's staff specializes in a hunter and jumper lesson program that teaches students of all ages to become confident riders, a status otherwise only granted after a horse picks you first for mounted dodgeball. In addition to lessons, Willow Creek offers opportunities for boarding, showing, and training.
Brandon and Jade Cheek, the husband-and-wife team behind Pet Pooper Scoopers, have always loved dogs. They love them so much that they don't mind cleaning up waste from other dog owners' yards. Busy pet owners can rest easy after the Cheeks' weekly cleaning visits and know that pets—and humans—can walk through their yards without stepping in a mess.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.

Certified trainers, a flexible schedule, and a focus on safety are at the core of Aim Safe Training Academy, for which range-safety officers oversee the activity at local indoor and outdoor ranges. Eight firearm-safety classes range from the NRA's First Steps Pistol Orientation to Texas Parks & Wildlife's Student Hunter Education course, all of which can be adapted into private lessons as well. And in addition to qualifying students for hunters' certifications, the instructors also prepare them to apply for concealed-handgun licenses thanks to a Texas DPS?approved curriculum.
