Lake Chloe

Well...we took Chloe out to her lake that PawPaw is digging for her. She loved it. She would have stayed all day if she could have. Here she is with PawPaw moving some rocks around to make a stone entrance. She learned how to work the Bobcat, and had a blast!

Then K and Chloe went to sit on the big pile of rocks which will some say be her stone entrance!

If you are wondering where in the world I am talking about, it is some land in Gallatin that will be our future home. I don't know when, but one day we are planning on building our home right in front of "Lake Chloe" on this beautiful 13 acres. Here is the "Lake" now. It covers about 1 acre of the property.

And here is the waterfall at the top of the Lake.

Here are some pictures of Chloe just playing, and having a ball. I think she will love it out here one day. For now, it is a great place to come and play.

And then her and K went hand in hand around her Lake to see the waterfall up close. I told K that this would be a perfect running track for me. If I ever decide to run....which I will. I have to. And being out running where nobody can see me jiggle is more appealing than running with a bunch of others at the gym.

And here is Chloe and her "husband" sitting at the waterfall.

Doesn't she look happy?

Chloe found some big rocks that she thought looked like animals. She said there was a turtle rock, elephant rock, dinosaur rock, and a crocodile rock. Here she is sitting on the elephant rock...and NO, you cannot see what it looks like!

Before we left Chloe wanted to go to the middle of her Lake to spend some alone time with her puppy. Here she is just thinking.....

She must have been thinking of all the fun she is going to have out here this Fall!

Hat's Off to Davidson Academy!

Well...the school year has started off with a bang! K and I have been so pleased with Davidson Academy, and all of the things that Chloe has learned.

Dor example, after the first full week of school Chloe came home with a picture she had colored of Adam and Eve. I said, "Chloe, what is this?" And she was a serious as she could have been and said, "OH MOM....I need to tell you about a man named Adam, and a woman named Eve." I was SO impressed, and she went on and told me the story. I just never knew what a blessing sending her to that school would be, but it has better than anything that we could have dreamed of.

Anyway, this week Chloe had HAT DAY. And it did not take her long to decide that she was going to wear her "Buck Hat." She calls it her Buck Hat because if you watch "The United States of Tara" there is a character named "Buck" that would wear a similar hat. Anyway....if you watch that show, please know that WE DO NOT let Chloe watch it, but she heard us call her Buck one day when she had it on, and that is where the hat got its name.

So...she wore her "Buck Hat" and I should say that she looked WAY cuter than Buck. She wanted to take pictures, as always. Here is a picture of her ready to go to "Davidson Academy High School", as she calls it.

And when I picked her up from school, she was still proudly sporting her "Buck Hat!"
