Lasting Memories-A Summer's End

With the boys both in college one of our rituals is returning to college. My layout is from when we took James to Purdue last year to start his college career. So here's a peek into the incredibly small dorm rooms at Purdue. And it is much smaller than my dorm room was the University of Michigan!
