First Field Trip

Friday, Gavin went on his first school field trip. His class went to the fire station. He really seemed to enjoy it. The fire fighters taught the class to crawl under the smoke to safety (using a sheet as smoke). The kids also learned to stop, drop and roll.

The visit to the fire station inspired great conversation at home about what we should do in an emergency. We talked about where we would meet if we had to leave our house in an emergency (a neighbor's). We talked about what we have in our house to help warn us of an emergency (lighted smoke alarms with batteries we replace every New Year's day) and that sometimes these alarms warn us that dinner is ready. :)

We also talked about other helpers we have all around us and that we should remember to thank them whenever we see them.
