We all passed!

I am very proud of my girls. Tonight the family went to training to learn CPR and AED for first responders. I was rather familiar with it, as many years ago I was an instructor for the American Red Cross. It has changed since then. It is much simpler now, and less to remember. JD did not need to take it, as he just took it again a couple weeks ago at work (plus, his card from taking it during his EMT class is also still valid..). Tonights class was through the American Heart Association.

It was however, the girls first time to take the class. Emily (who is a cadet at the fire department) did very well, and earned her advanced card.

The twins being younger (and are not yet cadets, but would like to be in the future), earned their basic CPR and AED. Since JD did not need to take the class, he worked with them during the class and they did very well.

All they girls were able to properly demonstrate for an infant, child and adult.

All 3 girls will be getting 4 hours credit in Science (health) for homeschooling, as well as being able to use in Girl Scouts.

Needless to say, I am very proud of them all. Many adults have not taken and earned their card, let alone 11 and 13 year old kids. I encourage everyone to go and take the class. It saves lives!
