It's Friday night, but two of my traditions had to take a little break this week... there was no Chinese food tonight, and I also don't have a Foster Parent Friday interview to feature.
I loved interacting with my sisters' friends, and I was especially happy to meet their very best friend. The three girls held hands throughout the entire field trip, and even sat together when we had a picnic lunch back at the school. I was glad that they had already bonded with someone, because the girls made such amazing friends in preschool back in New York, that I was nervous about whether or not they'd make good friends as easily down here. I shouldn't have worried though, because there are some great little kids in the class.
We also got a tour of the fire station, so the kids were able to see the kitchen and living room, as well as the bunk room where the firefighters sleep during long shifts. Then we went outside to see the fire truck, and the kids saw where the firefighters sit, as well as where all of the equipment is stored. We even got to go out back behind the station where each child had the opportunity to shoot water out of the fire hose. A fireman held the hose and let the kids turn the water on and spray it all over the place. They loved it!
The field trip ended with a class picture on the fire truck, and of course each child got their own little firefighter helmet. Then we headed back to the school to enjoy a picnic lunch. The class got to enjoy a special outdoor lunch at the picnic tables with all of the chaperones, and it was a great way to end a lovely morning. I'm so glad that I was able to go on the field trip with my sisters!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
