Chloe had a great time visiting a college last week. She doesn’t mind car trips, and was pretty good in the motel as well! (She loves elevators!)
Once on campus, I fought to keep her calm. Chloe’s weaknesses are MEN and “Teens”. What is a college campus full of? College guys, who all thought she was rather lovely too. Oh my! After a few corrections, she finally realized “Gee. Denise means business!” She loved the arena area (above),
because she was able to watch all the action from up high. She had the best
seat in the house. She totally ignores all the double-takes.
I’m so glad our church has a live band every Sunday. The band, lights,
NOISE in the arena were not worth getting excited about, and she is
totally accustomed to my signing the songs. Later during a meeting a
“boy group” of 3 young men came in to sing to the parents/visitors.
They came and crooned literally within a yard of her. She slept
right through it. I’m so glad this type of atmosphere is normal
Chloe was mildly amused when an admissions counselor asked
me if I was planning on transferring to the university.
I was not so amused. (My husband and daughter were snickering,
Ah college… being there almost made me “miss it”!
