Fire Station 1

This year Hyrum and I have been participating in a preschool co-op. Each mom takes a turn hosting preschool at her house (a month at a time). We meet once a week for two hours. So far, Hyrum has been loving it. I love it because it gets him out of the house with friends, learning from others! He has learned the days of the week, months of the year, and other tid bits of information. 

I am about to start my month of teaching. We began with a field trip to Fire Station 1 last week. It was so much fun, not only for the kids, but the moms too!

We got to see their kitchen, as well as where they exercise, relax, and sleep. We met the fire chief and then we got to head out to the bay where they showed us the fire engine. 

One of the kids asked how they get water out of the fire hydrants, so they pulled out their special tool and showed us! That was Hyrum's favorite part. 

The firefighter put on his gear and showed the kids. He told them not to be scared of him if they were ever in a fire because he would be there to help them. 

At the end, they got a call and we got to stand by and watch as they loaded up, turned on their sirens, and headed out to serve. Many thanks to all the firefighters, paramedics, and more who serve our community. 

It was an informative trip and enjoyable for all. My kids got in the car afterward and told me they wanted to be firefighters when they grew up!

Afterward, we went to our house for snacks and we made thank you's to send to the firefighters.
