More Discoveries Around Town

This city is overrun with so many underutilized yet incredible resources.

Yesterday, our homeschool group met at Anita Gorman Discovery Center. It’s about a mile from our home, and I’ve driven by it multiple times, yet, we’d never been. And what a shame-we had no idea what we’ve been missing! When I see that the Facebook page only has 73 likes, I’m pretty sure that many of you don’t know what you’ve been missing either.

They also offer lots of classes, school & homeschool activities, story times, and workshops, like making a rain barrel, bird & bat houses, and so much more. And guess what? It’s all FREE. photo(18)It was a happy surprise to find this treasure. We can’t wait to go back, and explore more places like this around Kansas City. They are here, just waiting to be found.

About Laura

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." -e.e. cummings
