Today is our first day on the work site. We got word of the snow that Northwest Ohio got last night... Today is a sunny and warm 79 degrees in Laredo, Texas:).

Lourdes University is working with three other schools during the Collegiate Challenge: Regis University from Colorado, Ethel Walker from Connecticut, and Carlow University from Pennsylvania.

The neighborhood, Tierra Prometida (Promised Land), in which we are building, is a completely Habitat-built neighborhood. The homes are also the "greenest" homes in Laredo. I'm excited to speak with the contractors about what sustainable methods are used in building the homes. Lourdes is working on two different homes this week.
