KCPT outing

A few months ago, my big boy A submitted to the public television station a story he had written and illustrated for a kids' writing contest.  He was invited to come to the station and record himself reading his story on camera--we went this morning.  They'll edit it, animate his illustrations, and put the finished product online and on TV at some point!  We'll also get our own copy on DVD.  I wasn't sure I could handle taking four kids to the station by myself, especially knowing we'd all have to stay very quiet.  But everyone behaved beautifully, and we had a wonderful time watching A and touring the station.  Perhaps this now makes me a true Kansas Citian!

The 1,042 feet KCTV-5 tower, a KC landmark.  We were standing inside it.
Our host, Lindsey, really went above and beyond, lying on the ground to get this photo--her idea.
