Some not-so-recent events

Here are a few pics of some things that happened a couple of weeks ago-

Grace and Melody participated in a scholarship competition sponsored by the Nill Foundation in cooperation with the Macomb Symphony. They both won scholarships, and we are very grateful to the Lord for how those scholarships will help with further musical education.

As a result of the scholarship, Grace was able to play in a few Macomb Symphony concerts (picture above)

Here are some shots of the "spring" birthday party (Joseph, Rebecca, and Grace).
We have divided everybody into seasons for birthday parties!

The brothers
(Dad and Uncle Brian)

Rebecca with Miley, the littlest cousin

The March birthday girls!

The happy little mommies!
Mary loves playing with her cousin Bella.

The voracious reader turns 13!

What a cutie Miley is!!

We were able to participate in the Junior High MACS Fine Arts Competition-

Lots of wonderful friends!
Grace, Melody, Haley Brammer, Anna, Hannah Drapinski

Anna was old enough to participate in a group event - she and Melody did a piano trio with Grace as the "accompanist"

Melody and Haley Brammer played a piano duo - "All Creatures of our God and King"

The accompanist and her invaluable page-turner

Melody played a really fun cello solo - Lalo Cello Concerto, 3rd movement. The red skirt set off the Spanish flair of the music!

Joseph entered this picture - Aquashell - in the digital photography category

Melody playing her sacred piano solo - "The Cleansing Wave"

Melody competed in the vocal category for the first time. She has been taking lessons from a sweet lady at our church, and enjoys it tremendously! She sang a "classical" piece - "For My Soul Thirsteth for God" by Mendelssohn

It was a blessing to have placed in all of the musical areas we competed in. The entire day was a great experience!
