2nd Field Trip of our 2011/2012 Homeschool Year

Our 2nd field trip took us to our local Fire Department. We knew that with Abram just joining scouts that he would have to have a trip to the fire department as one of his requirements for his Tiger badge. Thankfully, I have friends that work there and we were able to set up a trip.
The kids LOVED it. They asked tons of questions once they got over their initial shyness. They continued asking questions after they left and every once in a while, I will get another question out of the blue. We are going to have to write them down. haha
They saw the equipment that was carried on each truck.
 The gear the firemen have to wear to be safe.

 The different type of trucks. It was really neat.
They were able to sit in the trucks and have their picture made... which made their day!

Another great, educational and fun field trip under our belts.
