I’ve mentioned previously that Juju is obsessed with helicopters. One evening when we went to pick his Daddy up from work, we heard the Medflight helicopter taking off. Juju got so excited! We couldn’t see it,—we just heard it--but that was what Juju talked about all the way home.
It occurred to me that maybe we should go see that helicopter. A friend of mine works in the ER; I gave her a call, and she gave me a number.
I probably never would have thought of that if we weren’t homeschooling. But since we are homeschooling, everything that interests us is a potential field trip!
Our Catholic homeschool group and some other local homeschooling friends joined us, so we had a group of close to fifty.
Half of us toured the dispatch station…
…while the other half toured the helicopter.
The Medflight crew were great! I so appreciate them taking the time from their day to show us around.
Afterward, we went to the park for a picnic.
