Washington D.C. trip with Drug Court Team

I have been so blessed to be a part of Judge Clark's Drug Court team. She has provided me with opportunities that I never dreamed of! It's honestly the most rewarding work I've ever done! She brought me to Washington D.C. with her and some other team members for the national drug court conference. What an opportunity! She arranged for Congressman Gohmert to take us on a private tour of the capitol. I think that was my favorite experience. We were given access to places in the capitol that is closed to the public. And Louie was SO NICE and spent four hours telling us stories that only a congressman would know. It was just amazing! I also got to see Dorothy's ruby red slippers and Michelle Obama's Inaugural gown, which was a real treat! I roomed with Judge Clark and really enjoyed getting to know her better. It was an awesome time! Of course, it wouldn't be traveling unless I have to pump! I had the lovely experience of pumping on an airplane. I swear, there is just no dignity left when you have to tell the Judge, an attorney, and the head of CPS...excuse me...I have to go pump my milk because my boobs are exploding! Thank goodness they were so understanding! Oh, the things mothers do for their children!
