Joint Spouse Conference – Schofield Barracks

I LOVED attending the Joint Spouse Conference last year when it was hosted by the Navy on Ford Island. I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to go to this one either. It is always a super bargain for all of the great workshops you get to do.

Of course the Army had to put their own stamp on the decor:DSC_0357

My first workshop of the day was a painting workshop. Super excited for it because I am NOT a painter.  I was pretty happy with my cool little Hawaiian flower.

DSC_0362I am happy with it, of course there were some VERY gifted artists in the group making the rest of us look bad. Show-offs…

Next up was the workshop I was actually most excited to attend, the Oahu Army Natural Resources Program was giving a tour of it’s facilities on the base. They cultivate the endemic plant species of Hawaii and help clear invasive species. It is really cool to learn what they do and how much work can go into keeping a species of plant alive. They also do volunteer hikes to go clear invasive plants off the mountains, sign me up!

Hawaiian flowersMy final workshop was another super cool one (I hit the jackpot this year!) SCUBA! This was just an intro lesson done in a pool to get you used to the equipment. We still had such a fun time.
