Caravan to Notre Dame!
|My son and I will be heading to Notre Dame next week for a 5-day conference called ND Vision. We're driving across the country in 4 rented minivans with 13 teenagers (yes, 13!). We leave Spokane, Washington at 5:00 in the morning and for the next three days I'll be trapped inside a moving snack zone. The cars that drive beside us will see the vans surrounded by a cloud of orange BHT fumes. I won't even begin to describe what it will smell like.|
What is ND Vision? Here's how the people of ND Vision describe themselves:
ND Vision is committed to helping young people recognize God's call in their lives and respond to that call with courage and faith.I'm actually very excited to be going. Besides getting some quality time with my oldest son, I'm also going to be able to attend the special program for adults, ND Vision CYM.
The drive is also going to be fun. We're stopping in Billings, Montana where my parents live, and we're also going to stop at Mount Rushmore, which I've never seen.
I'm sharing this with you because I may not be able to write any posts next week. I'm trying to find out if I'll have Internet access while I'm there, because I'd love to write about our experiences, but if there's no access then I'll just have to wait until we get back to tell you all about it. I'll take pictures and keep a journal to remember everything, but I hope I'll be able to write from Notre Dame.
Do you have any recommendations for places to see while we're on the Notre Dame campus? I know we'll see "Touchdown Jesus," but what else should we be sure to see?
