this makes me smile.
way back from w week and saying “yes” to requests to control the fan.
p.s. clearly a better video camera would be good. oh well.
well, we’ve been to the fire station before, but never on a tour like this!
we saw nearly every nook and cranny. the red bedspreads and the fire pole being behind a screen door were a couple of my personal highlights. our first fire fighter guide was called out to an actual emergency mid-tour. one of our preschool daddies is a fire fighter too, so it was nice to have him take over for a little bit.
come along on a photo tour!
i think there were as many favorite parts of the day as they were children. the fire fighter surprising us by coming down on the pole was a highlight.
going in and out of the ambulances and fire trucks was an unexpected highlight.
trying on fire fighter uniforms was a highlight…and surprisingly heavy! and hot!
looking at tools just like we saw in our book was a highlight!
thank you, families, for coming along.
and thank you, newton fire department!
