Field Trip to the Fire Station

Today Drew's preschool class had a field trip to the fire station. When we got to school he told me he didn't want to wear a fire hat and he didn't want to ride a firetruck. That made me question how he was going to do once we got there. I know he's scared of loud noises and so I told him that they wouldn't turn on the sirens without telling us first. I also told him it's good to try new things, even if it's a little scary, because we might like them. He did so well, I was really proud of him for trying new things! He sat on the fire engine and enjoyed the tour of the station. They also watched a fire safety video and listened to how firefighters help people who are sick. When they brought out the stethoscope and blood pressure cuff he kept looking at me and saying "that's just like me!" He didn't want to be near the fireman when he was dressed in all his gear and his mask, but he wasn't the only one. When they left the kids all got fire hats and coloring books to take home. Drew ended up having a really fun day!

Good job, Drew! I'm glad he got into it and tried new things. I know Kylee was the same way about the fireman in his oxygen mask, but it is great for them to see and hear what a fireman would be like in all of his gear if there ever were an emergency.

What a brave boy! I'm so glad you got to go with him, those are the memories that will bring a smile to your face when you're old like me.

Love you, (on the last day you will ever be 29!)

Your mom.

HOW CUTE! He is such a brave little man to go and try to enjoy himself. You know...our 5 year old doesn't like loud noises either...he wears hats or ear muffs to the movie theatre!!
The pictures are adorable!
