At the start of this school year, I decided to join a local homeschool mom group.
One of my favorite people is leading the group which made it an obvious choice to join. We meet once a month to share ideas and give each other support and go on field trips together. There are about 15 moms in the group, some have a couple kids and some have a lot of kids.
A few weeks ago, we went to the fire station for a fire safety class.
There were about 40 kids in our group! How's that for socialization?
This trip was awesome. The firefighters were great with the kids and they all learned a lot about fire safety. They even had a safe house set up where real smoke came out to set off the smoke detector and the kids had to "get low and go."
I was majorly impressed with this group of firefighters!
* Gabe was there too but was having one of his puny days. He spent most the trip in my arms or sleeping on the couch at the station.
