Ella's First Field Trip

When Ella found out that her preschool would be doing field trips this year, she was just THRILLED! She has been asking for weeks, "Is my field trip tomorrow?"and finally yesterday the answer was "Yes!" Her class went to the firestation downtown and she had the best time!When she came home, she told me alllll about it. Her favorite part was when the firefighters slid down the pole. Actually, I think that was all the kids favorite part! She felt so grown-up today getting to go on a big-kid field trip. Here is a picture of her class and her teacher Ms. Stephanie with a couple of the firefighters at the station. Thanks Melissa for emailing me this picture! Its so cute!


Out of 12 kids in her class-only 3 are girls! Ella doesn't seem to mind though:)


They even gave the kids these schnazzy hats. Check out Fire Chief Ella.

Thank you firefighters for all you do to protect us! We appreciate all you do!

I love it. Such fun for her - I know these second children really get excited about stuff after watching their older sibling do all the fun stuff. Yay for Ella!

She's so cute. I would love to be her age again... field trips, riding on the back of the bumpy bus, taking lunchables for lunch, goofing off when the teacher isn't paying attention....or maybe even when she is... :) lol

Field trips are so much fun! I miss the good ole' days of getting on the stinky bus and listening to the loud hum that is created from everyone talking at once.

The firestation was a great place for a field trip. I think all the kids a fun time and learned a lot.

It was a great field trip. It was cool to see what an awesome kitchen they have. They deserve it! The firemen sliding down the poles was the best. I didn't think they even did that anymore.

Oh sweet little Ella looks so happy with her firehat! I'm glad she enjoyed her field trip. I just love reading about your family Holly. I can remember being your age and having my oldest four. They were like stairsteps. There were many days I didn't know which end was up! I didn't have a loving and helpful husband like you have in your Joey. You are so blessed and in sharing with us all, you bless us in turn. Thanks for that!
