Monthly School Wrap-Up–November

We didn’t do as much school work this month between Sammy’s surgery and the Thanksgiving holiday.  We took a lot of time off for his recovery and for the holiday but we did fit in some fun stuff.  I might do a full post for each of the field trips we went on this month. 
First up was the police station… yes, that is Sammy sitting in the chief of police seat in the debriefing room raising his hand to ask a question:

We went on a field trip to the fire station.  We have done this before but this was a volunteer fire department and they spent a lot of time talking to the kids and letting them try on different equipment and climb all over their trucks!
