Our little Cinderella

Life around here can be summed up in one word- BALLET! Dance is a part of our day from the morning to night. Kennedy would sleep in ballet slippers if I let her! She LOVES it! She is always making up new dances and inviting Brian and I to balls. She even makes official invitations too! There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called “Cinderella”, and it has kind of become Kennedy’s song. Every time Brian and I hear it we think of our little Cinderella!

“She spins and she sways
To whatever song plays
Without a care in the world
And I’m sitting here wearing
The weight of the world on my shoulders

It’s been a long day
And there’s still work to do
She’s pulling at me
Saying “Dad, I need you

There’s a ball at the castle
And I’ve been invited
And I need to practice my dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?”

So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone…

She says he’s a nice guy and I’d be impressed
She wants to know if I approve of the dress
She says, “Dad, the prom is just one week away
And I need to practice my dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?”

So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone

She will be gone

Well, she came home today with a ring on her hand
Just glowing and telling us all they had planned
She says, “Dad, the wedding’s still six months away
But I need to practice my dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?”

So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone.”

    Sounds like the perfect song for Kennedy. She sure is a beautiful little ballerina!

    The ballerina pictures are precious. The top picuture is a keeper. Email me that one, please!!!. I’m still drying the tears after reading the poem. I think Brian mentioned it when we talked Sunday. He couldn’t really talk about it because I could tell he would get choked up. He misses his family so much! We do too.
    Love you all soooooooooooo much!
