Weird car pics

I decided to add these pics just to attempt to prove that we are normal(?) kids.


It would be weird if we weren't a little bit weird......

What to do when you forget your tie....

One Sunday this boy forgot his tie in the van.
He couldn't play in the service without a tie on.
This called for desperate measures.
A very artistic viola player took pity on him and made a bow tie out of the only things that were available: a page of music and her ponytail.
He will be forever grateful.



Or will he?.....

SH MACS 2010



Sammy won first place in Bible teaching.


Some rabid fans showed up to cheer her on!




Our large instrumental ensemble took 1st place.



I entered this picture in digital photography.
The title is "New Life."


"MACS is fun!"



Ajay-"What are you doing, child?"


The rare event of a smile instead of the back of someone's head!!!


Seniors 2010!

MACS was a great experience and a lot of fun!

Moving Day!

We moved the girls into their new room today!

Everyone was very excited!


Look at all the space!

Pruning the Mieczkowski Orchard

A few days ago we went over to Grandpa and Grandma Mieczkowski's house to prune the orchard.

This has become a necessary yearly tradition!

Many hands make light work!

OCMS concert

On Saturday we played in an Orion Chamber Music Society (OCMS) concert in Clarkston.

The concert was a great success and we had a pretty big crowd.

Here are a couple of pics....

It's hard to believe that Easter is only three weeks away!

Our Easter Cantata is coming up at our church, First Baptist Church of Troy.

It will be a time of beautiful music with a meaningful message.
Hope you can come!
