Yes, I am seriously playing catch up on the blog. Life has been a little crazy around the Albrecht home. June and July were crazy busy and it's not even over yet! Before we left on vacation to Idaho I got to participate in CBRN Regimental Week. I wrote about the ball but the following week I got to spend a couple days hanging out with other Chemical Corps Spouses. It was pretty awesome.
The first day we took a tour of the museum (which I normally love but we had a tour guide who seriously pegged out my perky meter). Still it was neat to go and see the stuff and we even got a special look at the basement where few people get to go. After the museum tour we went to a luncheon where we had delicious food and where I ended up at the table with half of the past Chemical Commandant Spouses. What was cool was we had six Commandant Spouses in attendance and it was fun listening to how different the Army was during their time of serving, whether it was current or in years past.

The day after the museum tour and luncheon we went and had a hands-on kind of day. Our Chemical Gift Shop had ordered a ton of "Real Housewives of the Chemical Corps" t-shirts and a lot of us wore them, it was pretty fun. What was also fun was just hanging out with other Chem Spouses and seeing some of what our Soldiers do in their job. We couldn't take pictures everywhere we went because some of those areas are pretty secure.

I love all the opportunities that I have been afforded when it comes to being an Army wife.
