If You Encounter a “Hangry” Kid…

After school snack ideas for when you encounter ‘hangry’ kids. Hangry is a real thing.  It’s when someone is angry as a result of being hungry.  I know it's real because I often pick up 'hangry' kids from school and it's not pretty. My kids claim they are 'starving' after school.  They ate a hearty…

Mrs. Helinda Takes on Mudderella!

Helinda is not afraid to get her hands dirty so we weren’t surprised when last weekend she headed up to Whistler to participate in Mudderella 2016.


Mudderella Whistler is a 9km muddy and hilly obstacle course, designed by women for women. The event is all about working together, having fun, and owning your strong all while supporting good causes important to women!

When asked about her Mudderella experience here is what Helinda had to say: ‘We endured the cold, climbed the mountain, maneuvered the obstacles and got wet and muddy.  My team and I had a blast; our team included my sisters and a couple of friends who are like sisters.  We came and conquered all while supporting a good cause.  Will we do it again next year...I'm not sure?  But I know we will do our part to support these great causes while challenging our bodies and minds to overcome the obstacles we face in life.”

Here are a few images captured on race day!

They really do look like they are having fun!
