Soren's preschool teacher took his little class on a variety of field trips this year-- they went to a bakery, the post office, the library, and the fire station. Liam and I were able to join them for their fire station field trip.
Each kid had a "buddy" for safety. Here's Soren holding hands with his buddy.
Here's the whole class, plus some little siblings. I am totally digging Baby Gwen's duck face (far left). You'll notice many of the kids are wearing "Junior Firefighter" badges.
The fireman, Randy Adams, let Soren's classmate try on a firefighting outfit.
Then they got to look inside a real fire truck!
The best part was when Mr. Adams let all the kids take a turn squirting the fire hose.
Our town's firefighting force is all volunteer, which means that Randy was kind enough to volunteer his morning to teach the kids about fire safety and fire stations. He was really good at talking to the class in a way they could understand without talking "down" to them.
Aren't they all so adorable?
