Astronauts and Sorority Girls


We headed out bright and early today to 
drive through the beautiful farmland and
cross the state to visit...


Purdue University.



It was Mother's Day at the Sorority House.  
We got to mingle with Moms and daughters, we 
were treated to a lovely lunch and the best part
was being able to spend time with our Kate.


It was a perfect Spring Day and the campus 
was filled with people enjoying the beautiful
weather.  It was Spring Fest today, the 
Boilmaker was driving around campus.


Tonight there is a reunion of alumni who
have become astronauts.  Purdue has 23
graduates who have become astronauts.
This frathouse was welcoming back one of
their brothers to campus, Gene Cernan, 
the last man to walk on the moon.


Of course, another graduate was Neil Armstrong,
the first man to walk on the moon.

I am amazed at the amount of time the students
of today spend on their studies.  We are always 
hearing from our kids about the multiple all-night
study sessions that they have weekly, yes, weekly.

Did you know that Purdue is ranked number 8 in 
the list of the 16 colleges and universities where it
is the hardest to get an "A"?
