Citizens' Academy

Our city is in the middle of a free, eight week course called Citizens' Academy. Mom, Alison and I all signed up for it, and so far we've learned about the Administration and Finance, Community Development, and the Public Works. Last night we had a bus tour of the town and ended at the Public Works station. In the upcoming weeks we get to take a tour of the water and utilities areas, the police station, and the fire station, and then the last week will be graduation, when we all get a free t-shirt. :-D Last night at the Public Works building they let people climb into the plows. Those things are way up there! We got a couple pictures with Alison's ipod:

Those wheels looked ginormous in person, but when I stood next to them they didn't look so tall anymore.... We're looking forward to the four remaining classes!
