Denver Bronco's Training Camp and Kids' Page

You don't have to bleed blue and orange to enjoy the Denver Broncos. I'm not exactly a sports fan, but I think there is plenty of fun to be had by taking kids to sporting events and helping them to learn from the experience.

The Denver Broncos first pre-season home game is on August 21 at 7pm. You can find the full schedule on their website. Training camp is going on now! The next practice is Wednesday, August 11 8:45 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. You can find more details HERE. Add this to your list of free stuff to do with the kids before summer is over!


And while you are checking out all things Bronco, be sure to look at the Kids Page, games, and Broncos Bunch memberships.

I feel like this should go without saying, but I need to say it. Professional athletes are not gods. They are not to be worshiped. They are not to be viewed as the standard of success.

Sports are just an integral part of our culture. Americans love to play sports, to watch sports, and to follow their favorite players and teams. There's nothing wrong with that so long as it's not to the detriment of other aspects of their lives. Do we want our kids to grow up thinking their highs and lows depend on whether or not their favorite sports team won or lost? Of course not. Can much be learned from professional sports? Of course. Not the least of which is that people are people. Some make good choices and others make poor choices. Sometimes people don't get what they deserve... and sometimes they do. (Even if they do make millions of dollars each year.) Now that we've cleared that up...

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
