A few shots of my oldest daughter, Kendall (14), in the 2013 Nutcracker. Kendall has been performing in the Nutcracker every year since she was about 4 years old. She loves classical ballet and works hard year-round to prepare for her performances. She has danced most of the roles in the Nutcracker, but still has a few left. She danced in four acts this year (three full acts, and the opening act). The group that she dances with, Miss Felicia’s Dance Troupe in Ponte Vedra Beach are a Christian-based team. Their performances each year go to raise money for critically ill children who are participating in the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Make-a Wish program. They prepare all year with this mission in mind, which naturally adds another level to their dancing. It’s crazy where time goes. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that Kendall was a toddler up on that stage and now, she is a beautiful young woman. I’m very proud of her.
