As mentioned a few days ago, Saturday the ITI held its opening ceremonies, the first ever in Trumau. Cardinal Schönborn was present, and was gracious enough to sit and talk with us that evening. No small feat! The entire evening there was a line of people waiting to talk to him and ask for his blessing, and he took time to spend with the students.

John dressed as a hobbit for the event:

The following pictures were taken by Ginger, who kindly photographs many ITI events.
Mommy and Thomas:
John must be saying something very interesting.

Thomas goes for the Cardinal's nose.

Happy boy!

Beautiful girl.

The Cardinal blesses Katie.

So, umm. . . Did our erstwhile hobbit go barefoot? And I'm sorry, but I have to admit that I never really paid attention to the hairiness of the feet in question. . .
