On Monday morning Malcom is screening (trying out) for Dev group. It's new seal team and it's really difficult to get in. He's been training for this for months now. Here is some of what he has to do just to get an interview...35 pull ups, as many situps and then pushups in 3 mins (they want a min of 140 each) a 3 mile run in 18 mins and then a 1/2 mile swim in the ocean in 14 mins. I know he will do well in all of these events but we are worried about the swim. You just can't predict mother nature and you never know what the current will be like in the water. I've been with him when he's practiced each event and he does better than the requirements. He's 15sec over on the swim. He's taking it easy this weekend to rest up for Monday morning. I'm nervous for him but I'm not letting him know :D There are around 75 (I think) trying out for this and they only take around 10 guys. If he gets this it will really help in his career. :D
I appreciate the thoughts and prayers in advance. :D

Thanks ladies!! Tomorrow is the day!! He's so nervous but I know he'll do fine. But the weather isn't going to be good out in the ocean. Last I heard we are going to have 3-4 ft waves and a strong current. Keep your fingers crossed!! I'll keep you updated!! :D

He just left to head to the base. I have never seen him so nervous!! Hopefully I should know something by lunch time. I'm not even going to be able to concentrate at work thinking about this. Thanks for the good thoughts.
