Yesterday there was a house fire across from us by the Veteran's home. We could see the smoke really well. Steve went in on it since it was second alarm. We can see the road from our house, so when we heard that he was going to the fire in Engine 6, we all stood at the fence and waved (kids screamed). All of a sudden the engine stopped and we weren't sure what they were doing. Thought maybe they were stopping traffic or something. One of the guys got out and looked around like they had lost something. The kids kept screaming, but nobody seemed to look our way so they were disappointed. I woke up this morning and checked my email. This is the sweet note I got from my firefighter hubby!
I SAW ALL YOU GUYS AT THE FENCE WHILE I WAS GOING TO THE FIRE, AT FIRST ALL I SAW WAS ANDREW THEN I SAW EVERYONE. I WAS GOING TO SAY HELLO ON THE P.A. BUT A DOOR ON THE ENGINE FLEW OPEN AND WE HAD TO MAKE SURE WE DIDN’T LOSE ANYTHING. IT WAS GOOD TO SEE YOU CHEERING ME ON I LOVE ALL OF YOU.
The kids are going to be so happy when they read this! It makes me want to cry...
