Kids, I know that we're all busy.  You work, you have to take care of your family, you have to tend to your friends, and you certainly have to be sure to get some time in with the pets.  So when it comes to the summer, sometimes it's really easy to just take the easy way out and send the children to the pool.  And that's great, don't get me wrong.  But sometimes you need something else to capture their interest. Something active.  Something where they're learning things and interacting with other kids, and having fun.  So why not sign your kids up for a few of the summer sports out at State Fair Community College?  They've got a lot to choose from, as you can see.
