Well last week was fire safety week and on Monday a fireman came to KDO and brought his fire truck!!
Reid wore his fireman boots and rain coat in honor of the special day.
And, of course, Lilly wanted her photo taken, too. (:
I wish I could show you a picture of all of the kids ages 2-5 sitting perfectly still because they were and I was amazed! ( ;
The fireman talked about fire safety.
Then step by step his partner put on his fire fighter suit and explained what each piece was for and how it was still him under all of that stuff.
He got on the floor and waved and crawled through the kids giving them high fives.
Then all of the kids practiced crawling "under the smoke" to get outside.
Then we got to go outside and tour the fire truck!
Lilly wouldn't take a picture alone with the fireman so I took one for the team. Ha!
Climbing across the truck.
Driving! Watch out! Ha! We had lots of fun learning about fire safety. Besides the awesome visit from the firemen and getting to see the fire truck we also stop, dropped, and rolled to get tissue paper flames off of our backs, did a science experiment with birthday candles to see what a fire needs to burn (air, heat, and a source), we stapled wax paper to sentence strips to show what it would look like in a smoky room, crawled underneath the tables to practice crawling under the smoke, and read some books about fire safety and fire trucks!
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
