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...

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY!

There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells.

Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy. This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely.

Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off):


But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (also 10% off…

Summer Plan 2012

Is anyone else asking themselves what happened to the last 3 months?? (Maybe you're wondering what happened to the last 3 years or just the last 3 days... at any rate you know how I feel, mom.)

Today was my kids' last day of school for the year. I'm sitting on the precipice of another summer. This was my first year of "freedom" - two kids in school full time. It felt good. But as predicted I packed every possible moment with housework, volunteering, writing, and working at my "real job" (ie. the one I actually get paid to do).

And it makes me wonder, how will I ever scale back and just enjoy the lazy days of summer?? How can I embark on a summer of fun and adventure without feeling like I'm staring into the abyss? I've done an unofficial survey of other moms I know and there's a mix of emotions. Some are ecstatic to have kids at home this summer; others are dreading it. I have a funny feeling the first group isn't telling the whole truth…

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."
