Joshua, Caleb, Josiah, Levi, and Silas
On Friday, March 11, Kerry, the boys, and I were privileged to get to watch our nephew Joshua graduate as a marine. It was a fun time connecting with family and an honor to have a family member protecting our country.
I wasn't too sure how the boys would do, but fortunately the graduation was outside. I can't say that they sat perfectly still, but overall, they did great. They were troopers being in the bleachers for over 2 and 1/2 hours, and even better yet when we didn't get to lunch at our typical lunchtime. They never complained about it. The only complaint I got was from Josiah, because I had told him we would do something fun after the graduation. It was a challenge at times to wait for what he considered "fun."
