Today, I have the pleasure of welcoming a very unusual guest blogger to my site: my six-year old son! This is his first blog post ever, but he felt very strongly that he would like to visit my blog and tell the world about a subject close to his heart: Lifeboats. He asked if he could post on my blog and I thought… well, it’s a good cause, a great idea… why not?
He has been a member of “Storm Force“, the RNLI club for young people, pretty much since he was born. As a family, we love visiting lifeboat stations, watching exercises, or even (as has happened on a couple of occasions) real rescues. To raise awareness for the RNLI and its lifeboats, my six-year old drew this picture this morning:
This is what he would like to say about lifeboats: “Lifeboats matter because they will rescue you if you’re stuck out on the sea. Lifeboat crews are important because they drive the lifeboats out to you. The crews aren’t paid, only the captain is, and they are all very brave. Did you know that lifeboats don’t sink? If they turn over, they right themselves because of the airbag that’s in the bottom of the hull.”
Well said! A big thank you to my special guest blogger today. If you would like to find out more about lifeboats or support their cause, visit the RNLI website here.
