Firetrucks and dogs, what more could a 1 year old boy want? Kevin was so excited. He pointed at this giant dalmation and made panting noises like a dog. Up close all he could do was stare with his jaw hanging open.
We also visited the firetruck. Kevin got to sit on it and the girls (and Daniel and I) asked the fireman lots of questions about his truck and what it's like to be a fireman. We learned about water pressure, hose sizes, how the hoses connect to the hydrant, color coded hydrants, and lots more.
I was trying to think what subject to classify this as so that I could count it for homeschooling. I've decided to call it "Civics" (which is a required subject under Colorado homeschool law) since we were learning about community helpers.
