We Are ND

One of the most exciting events of 2009 has been Luke's graduation from Notre Dame. It is amazing to think just four years ago we were just getting ready to send my little brother to South Bend, IN. In those four years there has been much joy and frustration but in the end Luke left with both unforgettable memories and amazing friends.

My Boys

I officially won the "Best Sister of the Year Award" when I agreed to drive with Luke home from Indiana. We packed Luke's car to the brim...literally shove stuff in and close the door as fast as you can...and left early Monday morning. After 27 hours of driving; 1 asshole cop who was so concerned about how you are allowed to wear your hat in med school; 1 deer completing a 360 degree narlie flip kick over the cars in front of us; 4 Monsters, 4 Red Bulls, and 3 bottles of 5 hour energy; 4 hours of sleep at Days Inn in Wichita, Ka (NOT Super 8); Jay Z w/DMB on repeat; thousands of cows in Dalhart, Tx; and the lady racing us down the mountain...we made it home safe.

The memories Luke brought home with him are endless. I feel so lucky that I was given the opportunity to experience just a few moments of it. Luke left ND to come home to pursue his dreams but we all know that a piece of his heart will remain at Notre Dame for the rest of his life. I am so proud of all he has accomplished and am excited to see where he goes next.
