So before I tell you about our day with the kindergartners I want you to promise me that you’ve checked your smoke alarms, you have a fire plan and you have at least practiced it a few times. If you haven’t then you know what’s on your agenda this week don’t ya!!??!!
Today the weather was perfect. We had 65*, sunny and the kids were just wound up tighter then a slinky in a box. We got there just a few minutes early so I was able to take a couple of pictures of the trucks and then also go to Rachel and Abby’s rooms and get them to help.
Wilbur is now getting much better at not being so afraid to ride and sat right up front and enjoyed the day.
We took about 80 kindergartners for their rides.
Each time we picked up another class we’d get three riders up front to blow the sirens. It’s like the most greatest thing in the world for them to be able to make as much noise as they possible can and the smiles. Oh the smiles….
As we were leaving, Smokey Bear was also leaving the school and he came over to say hi to Justin and Hannah. Hannah was scared to death of Smokey so hid behind me but Justin stood beside him. He wouldn’t shake his hand but he enjoyed seeing him.
So it was a great day today. It was our 14th year (we started giving the kids rides back when Mike was a kindergartner) and when they call next year and ask us, we’ll be there again with lights blinking and sirens blaring.
I hope you all had a great day today. Tomorrow is even going to be better. Take care and God Bless!!
