I have three kids, ages 14, 10 and 5. My 14 year old has soccer that keeps us busy. My 10 and 5 year olds will probably get involved in sports as well. It will be a busy year, that's for sure. - Sonia Lopez

Our school has an after school program. They also have clubs that the kids can join. My son loves the chess club. I think it’s so important for them to be active and participate in different activities. We are lucky our elementary school offers these types of clubs for the kids to enjoy.  - Yolanda Mefford
