don't it feel like the wind is always howlin'

Last Friday we got to go see Celia in the middle school production of "Annie". She sure comes alive on stage, that one.

She sang "Hard Knock Life" as though she had connected with her inner orphan. It was as like she knew the true meaning of every word. Weird.

And Sunday, I was getting ready for church and could faintly hear the strains of "Hard Knock" being sung by teeny tiny voices. I stepped from the bathroom wondering where the music was coming from. There sat our dad, with headphones on, finalizing his lesson for church whilst listening to orphans sing about no one caring a smidge. Love it. Guess it's our new anthem around here -- at least until the next musical.

  1. All of my children have always loved being orphans. It's the favorite game. I try not to believe that it has anything to do with me... ;)
