Well, we're out at Notre Dame for another Pearl-a-Palooza (forty family members gathered for the ND-Michigan game!), so there's not much time to blog. But I thought I'd quickly share with you some of the sights I've seen out here.
First, here's a lovely painting of Our Lady, for whom this beautiful university is named (and Her Son, of course), that I saw in the lobby when my husband and I dropped in at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart yesterday.
Now for an example of the not-so-beautiful out here on Our Lady's campus. I took the picture below when we were getting a tour of our youngest son's awesome basement four-man dorm room two days ago. It's big enough for four beds, four dressers, four desks, four closets, two mini-fridges, and a huge L-shaped sectional sofa with a 42" T.V. set in front of it. It's really quite the top-of-the line digs for a quartet of college sophomores. But it is definitely not beautiful. Remember, this is four guys living together that we're talking about, and not a neatnik in the bunch.
