Drumming Through The Years

One of my favorite parts of teaching Zumbini® is seeing the growth each child makes week after week.

Touch-A-Truck could not have happened at a better time for this little guy. Given his current excitement around trucks and wheels, this event was a dream come true for him!

Clemyjontri Park, aka “WHEEL WHEEL”
