Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

As I mentioned the other day, the boys and I visited the Louisiana Children’s Museum while we were down that way in early October.

The special exhibit we were excited to see was a traveling one for Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood.

We LOVE Mister Rogers.  When we started homeschooling, watching Mr. Rogers was a post lunch activity.  One disappointment for moving to Maryland was discovering that show was not on the local PBS station.  (It is on up here in Alaska once a week and I’ve had the DVR record a few so we can introduce Little J to the show.)

As I want to keep this particular post focused just on that one exhibit, I’ll be posting the rest of our visit in a third post within the next few days.
