Piano Recital




 This year the girls each played one of their own compositions along with their recital pieces as well as a duet. They both played beautifully and were heartily complimented after, especially for their compositions which can be heard here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GD34x9Sw_ws  They were pleased to have their Aunt, Uncle, Granddad and cousins there. This wraps up the 7th year of piano for Mary E and the 6th for Maggie. They are planning on a few summer lessons, but are looking forward to composing more.

Making Maple Syrup



Tapping the trees


Love the "spigots" that my neighbor made!


After collecting sap for a few weeks, the boiling begins.

Boiled down to perfection, Margaret does the sieving. 

Which is very important to remove all of the sediment.


Bottles washed and ready



Liquid gold

Finished!
