We have been experimenting with sprouting. Ellie decided that she likes the alfalfa sprouts, but not the broccoli, lentil, or bean sprouts. Alfalfa are my favorite as well. We are following the procedures from an ebook written by our friend Kenny Bunnell (which I cannot find on amazon right now to link...). Here is what is left behind after I pulled out the sprouts to sit in the sun for an hour.
Someone had a fun time being a photographer this morning!
Ellie had her last LPM recital, where she celebrated completing the 3 year program, and played an original composition.
She was especially proud of being the fastest member of the "In A Flash" club, clocking in at only 22 seconds! She worked hard on her flashcards, and it shows. She could name all of the notes from bass G to Treble F, plus the sharp, flat, and natural signs in that time.
Miss Sheryl gave lots of awards and treats -- and hugs!
Ellie was part of Miss Sheryl's first LPM class to go through the whole program, so the occasion had to be commemorated with a class photo.

After the recital, we stopped by the Perkins' house to deliver our baby gift. They invited us in and we stayed for over an hour, seeing the nursery and chatting. They are the nicest family!
