Programs for kids

Rensselaer has a lot of summer programs for children. The Park Board sponsors tee ball and more advanced baseball as well as the summer swim team, which will soon end its season. (I have never found an opportunity to do a post on the summer swim team, which I regret because it was a big part of our summers during the 1980s and into the 1990s.) This week many kids are in various art camp activities. Also, the Jasper County Library has lots of special events. On Wednesday it featured a guy who could make all kids of interesting things from balloons. He had a large, enthusiastic audience.
I finally got to go to one of the free Wednesday movies at Fountain Stone Theaters. However, the four-year old who went with me decided that the Smurf movie was a bit too scary and opted to leave about half way through. Maybe in a couple of years we can try again. There were a lot of people there--I suspect the theater makes up for the free admission with concession sales.
