Field Trip!

If you were a 5 year old boy, what would be the coolest thing in the world?

A firetruck.

If there could be anything cooler than that?

Two firetrucks.

And if there was any remote possibility of beating that in your wildest dreams?

Firemen. Showing off their gear. Letting you look at, touch, and sit in a firetruck. Showing you around the station. And telling you all about it.

That was totally our day.


First off, should there be any doubt, we look with our eyes, and listen with our ears. And, if, after asking AND receiving a “Yes” answer, you may touch.


Or just climb on in. Scary how big he looks in this picture, isn’t it???

As for me? 30 5 year olds, on a hike, walking the half mile from school to the fire station and back? Makes me want some of this.


I don’t know how they do it. It amazes me every time I see those teachers with smiles on their faces and calm pleasant voices. I mean, a phrase I never thought would come out of my mouth did today. “We don’t show our friends our underwear.” Yeah, I think I should buy them all a bottle case of wine for graduation. Those teachers deserve it!
