Throwback Post: Frog Hunt

Our friend, Ben, had his 5th spinal surgery today at the Shriners Hospital in Montreal. This surgery was unexpected and I’m not sure what’s harder as a caregiver, having lots of lead time or being in an emergency situation. Regardless, the Wolfe Pack is sending love to our hemi-buddy, Ben, and his mom, Karen. TheContinue reading “Throwback Post: Frog Hunt”

Tell Your Story: Sharing My Heart

Sharing your story is something each and every one of us can do. You can do it for yourself. You can do it to educate or inform others.

I’m Ready, What’s Next: Conversations & Connections

What a year! This time last year our family had just learned about the opportunity to move to Canmore.

We go to burn off energy, but also as a way to take care of our mental health. Our boys have a LOT of energy!Continue reading “Brain and Body Breaks”

Not a Goodbye

Friday, June 28th was my last day at Mayfield Elementary.  I thought it wouldn’t be a big deal. I thought I would hold it together way better than I did.  When a school year ends I am not usually the person who is crying over kids moving on. I am usually excited about what’s next.Continue reading “Not a Goodbye”

Voluntography – Special Edition

Meet Khai. Khai loves to play peek-a-boo and according to his mom, Julia, and his grandma, Kathy, he’s pretty fly for a small guy! This little warrior turned one on February 10th.
