We stepped inside the church, where I found this amazing baptismal font.
I don't know why this photo continues to load vertically when I've reoriented it, but the plaque on the stone reads: Upon this rock, men were once sold into slavery. Now upon this rock, through the waters of baptism, men become free children of God.

Walking around the campus gave John the opportunity to ask what monks are and for me to try to explain.
Of various buildings, John remarked, "There is a castle!" and "That is the biggest building in the whole world!"
Taking a break (which he does often)

We stopped for a cookie in the college cafe before coming home and taking naps. Today I baked some delicious, soft brioche bread. Also I'm busy processing a big bag full of apples Chris brought home from New York state. I've already cooked two apple crisps (froze one) and today cooked a batch of apple sauce. (Every time I have cooked apple sauce, I wonder, why do we ever buy this stuff when it is so easy, quick, and cheap to cook?!) With the remainder of the apples, I'll make either an apple pie or an apple coffee cake to freeze.
