Jacob is in the last row and closest to the camera. We had a hard time keeping track of both of them as they went through the course.

Caleb climbing. We lost him after this. His group was too far ahead of Jacob's.
They ended the course by swimming a few laps and jumping off the high dive.
After the course they went back to their barracks to get cleaned up and we headed back to the family reception to wait. We didn't get to talk to them until later.
The baby spotted my camera and wanted his picture taken.
They are somewhere in the second section of the middle group.
The corps of cadets. This was the first time they got to wear the uniform and join the corps.
Finally! We got to give them hugs and talk to them.
All of my children and my husband. You can see how much the little ones missed their big brothers.
When we were done chatting we took them out to lunch. We got to keep them 'till 8pm.
And then we had to take them back to their home away from home. I am so proud of them! They are having a great time and learning a lot. I cried a little as we left that night. It was the first time since we had dropped them off. Seeing them there, how happy they are, made me realize that this change is permanent.
