Wonder: Boys and Bugs

I asked my daughter what kinds of things brought expressions of awe and wonder from her three boys.

Here are events she shared:When they woke up in their new home in Indiana to see snow covering everything, mouths and eyes opened wide with wonder and glee!

The Christmas morning surprise of a Brittany Spaniel puppy:  “He’s ours?  We get to keep him?”  All accompanied by wonder-full squeals of delight.

Time after time the strange floaty creatures at the Monterey Bay Aquarium—jellyfish, sea dragons, an octopus--brought wide-eyed wonder to their faces.

But without a doubt, Mom says, their greatest wonder was reserved for watching a praying mantis eat a hornet.  They even recorded it so we could join in the wonder of this awesome experience.  Enjoy:
