Ready To Grow Playgroups are free and provide fun opportunities for children to......
Have you ever felt a bit of surprise mixed with admiration, curiosity, amazement and awe because of something beautiful, unexpected, unexplainable, or unfamiliar? How often? A couple times a year? Once a month? Once a week? Everyday? The feeling I’m asking about is wonder. How often to do have a sense of wonder? Do you wake up in wonder of a new day? Do you embrace the day with a sense of wonder at the world around you? Do you greet people in pure wonder about their life and experiences? Do you......
