Last week Annaliese's preschool class took a walk to the local fire station. I got to go as a volunteer mom. Very fun to see these little ones light up when we arrived. The firefighters really liked them too I think.
This trip was especially good for Annaliese because lately she's been afraid of fires at night before she goes to sleep (nightmares I think). She had some anxiety at school when they had a fire drill so we've been talking to her regularly to help her understand that there is no fire and she needn't worry. The firefighters are there to help keep us safe.
She loved climbing up in the cab of the fire engine. She loved holding her teachers hand who had dressed up in the fire gear. She had a great time and I think she is over her fear of fire drills for now anyway.
