GEMS at the Fire Station

 The girls' scout group went to the fire station a couple of weeks ago.  It was a pretty fancy suburban fire station (not in my ghetto neighborhood).  The firemen gave us a really nice tour.

All the mommies asked a lot of questions.  Is that normal?  I thought later, maybe we were a little too interested in talking to the fire guys.  Can you imagine it..a bunch of home school moms, " you get a LOT of fires out here?"

They did have a lot of good stories though.  One said that his former station burned their kitchen down when they left on a run and left the stove on! They also said that they don't use fire poles anymore because the fire guys would horse around and get hurt too much.  Some fire stations have slides, but this one had neither.

It was a lot of fun.  All the girls were so well behaved and we had a Christian fire man come and talk to them before the tour.  He gave a really neat devotional on bravery. Our little club has been so much fun. We also made quilt squares at a nursing home and next week one of the moms is hosting us to talk about her backyard chicken coop.
