I think this is when they come up to the door to throw in the phone for Negotiation.

Getting off helicopter.

Freeman and Reggie getting ready to ride on the helicopter.
And they're off!
During this drill, the helicopter will hover above the ground and they all have to dismount at the same time. (The chopper gets a little closer to the ground...)
This is another team photo after another training they did.

Freeman loves watching the garbage come and get our trash. He also has a book about a Garbage Truck that he seems to have memorized. So what better than a garbage truck for his birthday. Freeman loves this truck and will recite quotes from his book while playing with it. ("Eat the trash," "Beep Beep Beep Hey! Beep Beep Out of my Way!" "Roar," "Burp!")
So sadly, the Bike Squad is on hold again.
And of course, Freeman has the habit of not letting me know anything, so I get a phone call hours after this happens saying, "I dislocated my elbow, I'm coming home." When he shows up he has is Sergent with him, and he is in a sling, with his shirt off with monitors still sticking to him! My poor Freeman. Then a few days after getting a cast all up his left arm, Freeman was having some cases of claustraphobia ( or just feeling restricted with his cast) and wanted his cast off, so I found him trying to saw it off himself! Luckily the doctor fixed that for him. Ha Ha.
Freeman had surgery a week ago, and the doctor found that not only did he fracture it in about 4-5 different places, he pretty much smushed the radial head so that was replaced with a new one. He is recovering well and can't wait to get his splint off.
