Our area of the world has a great program for all up coming Kindergarteners called, safety town. It's a week long event where they learn a different sort of "safety" each day. One day it's fire safety and the fireman comes and shows off his rig, one day it's bus safety and they ride the kids around to all the elementary schools in our city, another day it's water safety, so on and so forth. They also learn their address and phone number as well as getting their picture and finger prints for an id card. It's pretty cool and the kids love it. In every city where Safety Town is held, they have a Safety Town...hence the name. Below are some pictures of our city's Safety Town, fully equipped with traffic signs and lights, roads, houses and buildings, and little cars for the kids to drive around in.
These pictures were taken at the beginning of June...as you can tell by Max's eye, he totally was suffering from seasonal allergies:-(. Max starts school on the 26th of this month, we've got less than two weeks till we start this new chapter in our lives.
