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.
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.
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!
I had such a great day having some great times with some awesome ladies. This conference is a wonderful experience and they are already gearing up for the one in 2014, Marines are hosting this time so it should be fun!
