visitors at school

Today, 3 firefighters visited our class to talk about what they do. We're learning about Community Helpers this week. :) They brought their fire engine & got all dressed up in their gear. Some of the kids were really nervous about this part. It was good for them to get a chance to see them up close - they look kind of scary all geared up, but they're there to keep us safe! :)

We have really cute kids in our class. Some of the cutest, I think. But due to confidentiality, I can't show you their faces. Bummer. They had some pretty great "questions" though. (Usually a totally unrelated comment, rather than a question.) It's kind of tricky to teach kids of this age what it means to ask a question. They like to tell us about themselves, or their dads, or what happened before they came to school. Pretty cute. :) We all like to talk about ourselves, right? Why else would I have a blog? :P

It seemed to throw off the firefighters a little though, when our kids made random comments (some of which were extra hard because of speech issues). But they were good sports & did a great job, considering it was a group of preschoolers with developmental delays. They were totally excited, so that helped.

Is it weird that I check your blog almost every day? I know you post a lot, but I feel a bit obsessive, for lack of a better word... :) Anyway, sounds like a fun day! I love the random things little kids say before they develop a social filter...
