Career Day

This week is Spirit Week here at our school and today was career day. My boys are thankful they have a grandpa who doesn't like to throw things away. ;)  Jake decked out as a cop, which didn't surprise any of us, really, since he's wanted to be a cop since he  started talking and had the ability to tell us that's what he was going to be when he grows up. Everything but the name tag, which was Danny's from the Navy days, had been handed down from Gramps through the years. All he had to do was borrow the hat.
Tristen is a firefighter.  He threw on a pair of coveralls and borrowed the helmet from Jacob, which had been given to him from Grandpa many years ago. 
Tristen loves firefighters, fire trucks and all that jazz. In fact, a couple of weeks ago, Danny and I were rolling at one of his pee-wee football games when he actually stopped during the football game to watch some firetrucks go buy.  I'm sure his coach didn't find it humorous at all, but we sure did. It was so Tristen.
So..what were YOU going to be when YOU grew up?

This was fun to see! That's great they had all the necessary "gear" on hand. I feel like I've missed the boat on what I really want to be. I miss horses. But anyway, I'm thankful for all the other things I'm doing at this time in my life, I enjoy them, too. :)
