Stop, Drop, and Roll

Last evening, we decided to have a fire drill. I remember having these as a kid, we had a blast. None of my friends got to climb out a second story window down a rope/wood ladder with their family:) Kyla had watched a Franklin video dealing with the subject and we realized it was well past time for us to as well. We all tromped upstairs and tossed the fire escape ladder out the bathroom window, praying it wouldn't break the office window below.

Kyla practiced climbing up the ladder (yes, we understand that's the wrong way, but we have a REALLY tall house and she is still SO small), Gavin pretended to climb, and then we figured out where our "safe place" is on the property. Kyla even practiced calling 9-1-1 and telling the operator what type of help we need (no worries, she didn't touch the phone:) )

I pray that we never need to use this information, but I feel much more prepared in case we have to put it in use.
