Adventures in Babysitting

We were in the nursery tonight at church when we heard this loud sound. Karen said, "What's that?". Ellen said, "Is it the fire alarm?" We started grabbing kids and purses. We got our eight kids and the room across the hall got all of their kids and we were out of the building in less than a minute. They did so good lining up against the fence! I had to pull out my camera and take a picture of them. Jack asked me, "Miss Holly, is there a real fire?" I didn't know at the time. We found out later that an older child in another building had accidentally pulled a fire alarm. The fire department came and everything. I couldn't get a picture of the fire truck. It was on the other side of the building from where we kept the kids on the playground.

Thanks to everyone who's entered the contest. Keep those entries coming! I love it every time I check my email and find more entries. People have come close, but there's still plenty of room to get closer. So, if you haven't entered, do it!

Glad it was just a false alarm, and that everyone was safe. You must be proud of how your kids stayed calm.
