Every single day during the week at 9am you will find the Williams4 in the same place. Glued to the TV of course!

At 9am on PBS our favorite show comes on...SuperWhy! It is a great show about 4 superheroes who each possess their own reading super power! Together they travel into stories to help solve a problem, and along the way they gather letters, talk about sounds, and teach some great reading strategies! Hooray for educational TV:)

Imagine my excitement when I saw on TV that SuperWhy would be coming to Rochester this weekend!!! So this afternoon we went somewhere we had never been. We went to the Maplewood Rose Festival. I liken it to the Lilac Festival, only much smaller, much less crowded, and more obviously, displaying roses instead of lilacs. There were only about 100 people at the whole festival this afternoon, and other than the blazing sun, everything was just lovely.

PBS sponsored a literacy tent which basically consisted of a person dressed in a giant SuperWhy costume sitting in a folding chair. We had a quick lunch and then got in line to meet him. The kids were SO excited...every bit as excited as they were to meet the characters at Disney! SuperWhy didn't really move too much and didn't say anything at all, but the kids were totally enthralled! Completely worth the 1 hr 45 minute round trip drive!

Waiting for our big moment!

And here he is! Behold…SuperWhy!




I think Cara was imitating my pose here…how cute!


Then we took a walk in the rose garden.





Cara was very photogenic!






Matt and his dad were able to go golfing together yesterday which is something I know Matt LOVES to do. The kids and I were so happy to be able to spend Father’s Day with our #1 dad! Thanks for giving your kids a special day Matt:)
