Fun at the Firehouse

Today, in honor of fire prevention month our pre-school co-op took a field trip to the fire station.  The children learned about fire safety from a wonderful volunteer firefighter...and then he started up the truck and let them explore!  They had a blast...O particularly loved pretending to drive. 

After the children stopped using the firetruck as a jungle gym the fireman let loose a torrent of water.  The air was filled with the squeals of delighted children.  It is always an added bonus when education becomes joyful!  I love the real life experiences the children get with homeschool!
