When something big happens in a small town most of the town shows up. On Saturday our friends were getting an old house burnt down, on a piece of property that they own. We took a little walk down the street to watch the show. It was a little cold but pretty soon the flames were going and we felt the heat.
The firefighters took full advantage of this opportunity to use this as a learning experience and do some training.
Now every time we have gone past where the house once was the little man says "No firefighters burning the house today." We are also trying to help him understand that the firefighters job is to put out fires not start them.
I think that our next trip to the library we will have to find some more books on firefighters.
