Our local fire department sponsored a fire safety contest for all the local third graders. The participants were to make a poster of their floor plan which included the location of all the fire detectors, the escape plan for everyone and the meeting place outside of the house. Each elementary school in the area had a winner. J won for his school.
The kids got to tour the fire station.
J got to sit in the fire truck.
I had to take C to school, but J got to stay and eat breakfast with the firefighters.
After breakfast, J got to sit in the firetruck and do the radio test. Then the best part....J got to ride to school in the firetruck. All of the third graders were waiting outside when he arrived. They cheered and clapped for him. He was so excited.
Alright, so he doesn't look very excited. He was a little embarassed. He's not used to people clapping and cheering when he gets to school (although sometimes I clap and cheer when they all go to school). He was excited though. It was definitely a day to remember.
