Sycuan Wildland Academy Graduation

On April 25th Josh finished his Wildland Academy for Sycuan Fire Department!! Yeah!!! We were so excited to see him, he was at the Academy for 3 weeks straight and we got very few phone calls in between, it was a rough 3 weeks. Josh definitely had it way worse. He was up every morning at 4:30 for PT and then in the classroom the rest of the days and any breaks that were given were spent doing push-ups and sit-ups! A few days were spent digging trenches up the sides of hills and then sleeping on the top of the hill in only their uniforms in 40 degree weather. Poor guy was completely worn out when he got home, he lost 20 lbs while he was there! We are definitely glad its over and he is back home with us! But we are so proud of all of his hard work and dedication, We love you! Me and Oliver with Josh Ollie was so happy to have his Daddy back!

  3. I'm not sure if I'm making our blog private after all. You are only allowed 100 we don't have 100 commentors, but we have over 100 friends/family to invite to our blog. I don't want to cut anyone so I'm thinking of just being more on the ball about watching for other "Mary" commentors. Yep, hers was on ours as well. People are soooo wierd!
