Buck Recreation Center

Th Daniel H. Buck Community Recreation Center is one of the newest additions to the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District. Built in 2005 and full of excellent amenities, it is located just steps away from old downtown Littleton and the light rail station. The center has excellent programs all year long, but if you are looking for a way to keep cool this summer you may want to consider the Summer Fun pass. For $330 (resident fee) your entire household (2 adults and up to 3 kids; more kids are an additional $30) can have unlimited access to the center: "Passes include locker, towel, unlimited use of indoor pool (during open and lap swim hours), outdoor pools, weight rooms, track, whirlpools, steam room, gymnasium (during open gym times) and drop-in group fitness classes (according to the sspr.org website)."

You also need to check the WEBSITE for the pool and drop-in class schedule which is updated monthly. You can also click HERE to see a list of amenities. **FYI, the pool is closed today through June 4 for maintenance.**

If you are a stay-at-home mom like me and you'll be taking the kids by yourself to the Rec Center just occasionally, you'll probably do better purchasing punch passes for you and the kids. Consider the 15-punch pass if you think you'll be doing once a week through the summer (this totals about $140). This is also something to consider for the fall or winter if your kids are undecided on their athletic interests. Give them time to swim and play in the gym. We love the Buck Rec Center because of it's location, but Goodson Recreation Center is close by and offers a different variety of programs that are definitely worth checking out too.

Every summer I plan tons of outdoor activities, but come July, I'm ready for a cool indoor option. Recreation Centers are perfect for this - and kids love it! What are your favorite indoor summer activities?

Mom Spot: Living Green Tip

I have one word for today:

compost
Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time of the year. Countertop composting may be your best option if you live in  a small place. But believe me, you want to get this stuff out of the house as soon as possible. Seriously.
That's why what you really need to know about is what goes in there and where to put it. I've read books on the subject (yes, actual entire books) and here's what it boils down to: Get yourself a good collection bin for inside and a realistic spot to put it outside (I use an old plastic ice cream container by my sink and then a standard bin with lid in my garden.)Stick with vegetable and fruit debris primarily along with egg shells and coffee grounds.Although coffee grounds can go directly to the dirt, all else needs time to decompose. Give it no more than 3 days inside and then get it where it needs to go!So where should it go? In a bin, in a ditch, or on a pile. You choose. (If you live in an apartment, don't think this i…

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
