But wait, there's more...

After posting on Wednesday about Ashlea's great start to the week, she topped it off with an awesome day at preschool today.

Today the firemen came to visit.

As usual I thought she would flip out completely.  As usual she surprised me.

All the kids had a turn squirting the fire hose...



















Audrey loved it.



















Ashlea maybe not so much...



















The children all got to have a turn sitting in the fire truck too.  Both my girls had a turn.  I wasn't sure how Ashlea coped with that, but I asked her if she was laughing or crying in the fire truck and she said laughing, so hopefully that is the case.  It sounds like the firemen were really good with her - one even gave her a little cuddle when he got her down from the truck.

I don't think the firemen usually get the ladder off the truck for the children to play with, but seeing as they had a special request from one particular child who is obsessed with ladders they obliged...





















How good is that???

I have to say a huge thank you as usual to our preschool and particularly to Ashlea's teacher Sue Cook who always goes above and beyond when it comes to including Ashlea in all activities at preschool.  And a big thank you to the fire crew from Northmead station - hopefully we'll see you again at preschool next year.
