B is for ballet.
Princess P has found the best ballet teacher in the whole world. We are so blessed to have found Beloved Dance Academy last year and P said last night that she never wants to take ballet from anyone else, ever. No pressure, Miss Amy, but you can never go out of business!
My friend told me about Beloved last year and we thought it would be fun to get our girls in ballet together, since they don't see each other very often with our schedules. I told several CC friends about it and we managed to about fill her class with friends. We meet Mondays, right after CC and it is a perfect ending to our day. The boys play with friends at the park, I visit with their moms and dads, and P gets to "dance for Jesus" each week.
Miss Amy doesn't just teach dance. She teaches them about Jesus during the lessons, through the songs and words. I got there a little early to pick P up yesterday and overheard Miss Amy telling the girls they "aren't just like princesses, they ARE princesses. Their Father is God, who is the King of Kings." And reminded them they need to act like the princess they are - being kind and loving. It was so sweet.
Ballet has brought out a new, more confident side of Princess P too. I wish you could see her perform. Oh man - her smile runs off both sides of her face. It is adorable!
The songs are always perfectly chosen and she already wants me to download the one for this recital. We were listening to it last night and it is again, a perfect choice to teach the girls (and audience) about the One King.
