Last night was our first formal reception. It is called the "Blues Reception" (the new Army dress uniform is blue...except Guard and Reserve can wear the Class A "Green" until 2014). The reception is a formal meeting of the commander and his spouse. So we went through a receiving line to begin the evening. Mostly drinks and light dining while the students mingle with each other and the faculty.
Enya and Grace were downstairs in one of the mock courtrooms with the babysitters. They did really well considering they were with "strangers" for nearly 4 hours. It was a rare opportunity for Karina and I to socialize for so long without them with us. We really enjoyed it.
