In September, baby Bella Rose Thompson will experience one of life’s classic lessons: Music festivals can be awesome.
I have a gun. A battle rifle to be specific. My right forefinger controls the trigger. My left forefinger throws grenades. Wait . . . do I have any grenades?

Knowing how much fun it can be, I asked my 8-year-old in the back of the minivan, “How do you spell Mississippi?” She hollers out in a single breath with a lilting rhythm, “M, I, S, S, I, S, S, I, P, P, I!”
I am a proud Notre Dame student who tries to embrace every bit of ND culture: I have slapped the “Play like a Champion” sign. I have done hundreds of Irish pushups. I haven’t yet walked up the steps of the Main Building. But I can’t help but be wounded by the disappointment of alums as they bemoan traditions that have faded away.
2010-11 was a good year for ND fencing, women’s basketball and hockey.
This morning my 4-year-old daughter and I went to visit my 106-year-old aunt. I held my daughter’s hand as we walked down the long hallway to my aunt’s room and told her not to be afraid. As we walked, I also noticed the personal objects in people’s rooms.
Before the commencement 2011 arrived, senior Casey Cockerham asked his classmates to reflect on their growth and the wisdom gathered during four years at Notre Dame. Here are a few selections from what they had to say.

This is certain: An “extraordinary” gust of wind — recorded as 53 miles per hour at 4:54 p.m. October 27, 2010 — knocked over the Marklift MT40G hydraulic scissor lift and dropped 20-year-old Declan Sullivan to his death while the junior from Long Grove, Illinois, was filming football practice.
It’s 12:04 a.m. and your email inbox adds one more subject line: “GREAT SCOTT, IT’S FRIDAY!!!” The caps lock and midnight arrival carry a sense of exuberant urgency.
A best-of compilation of Laura McCarty Happy Friday Email.
Gingerbread it’s not, but the answer to the permanent housing crisis in Port-au-Prince and Léogâne may lie in sugarcane. Or sorghum. Or a blend of Haitian crop fibers.
When he talks about the need for a master plan for Léogâne, William DeJong quotes Proverbs: Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Kevin Dugan wants to use lacrosse to do good work in Uganda. He also wants to field some good lacrosse teams there.
In their 18-year fight against the pain, disfigurement and injustice caused by lymphatic filariasis, Father Tom Streit, CSC, and his bi-national team in the Notre Dame Haiti Program have grounded their scientific research and medical work in a consistent message: We are here for you.

Things seen and heard around the Notre Dame campus.
Since opening its doors in September 2004, the Browning Cinema has gone well beyond typical movie-house fare to become both an entertainment and educational hub for Notre Dame and the surrounding community.

Notre Dame people in the news.
Deaths of Notre Dame alumni.
I have always been comfortable living with questions. The world is an infinitely fascinating place, beguiling mysteries remain unsolved and my reply is a pilgrim’s curiosity and cheerful puzzlement. Besides, I always figured that to ask, to question was to enter into a dialogue with God.
Cornmeal, Donna and the Buffalo, Papadosio, The Ragbirds and The Twin Cats are among the groups slated for the 2011 Head Jamz Music Festival.
