Meet our family!
Eric and Kaery head up the family of 7 children. Though neither has much musical ability themselves, they both wanted the children to have the option to sit down and play an instrument, therefore pressing music lessons--even when the children weren't enthused about such an idea. Us kids are so thankful now! They are such awesome parents in so many ways!
Hailey is the oldest of the family at 18 years old. She is a country girl 100%! Cities do not appeal to Hailey--she stays out of them as much as possible. Hailey spends most of her free time writing novels, practicing instruments, and playing outside.
Toby is 16. He is the calm, collected one of the family, and does his best to keep the fiery-spirited siblings he is sandwiched between in line. Fishing, riding four-wheelers, and working outside are some of Toby's favorite pastimes.
Ethan is 11 years old. Being a carbon-copy of Hailey, the two of them have a unique understanding of each other that no one else can figure out. Ethan began cello and piano lessons at 5, started fiddle 3 years ago, and mandolin in 2016. For fun, Ethan loves playing with his matchbox cars, riding his four-wheeler, and riding his bike.
Annie is 10, only six months younger than Ethan. She is more than a head shorter than he is, for which Ethan is very thankful! Annie is learning piano and fiddle, and her favorite things to do are play with her younger siblings.
Maxwell (Max) is 7. He's got quite the voice, but not quite enough confidence to share it on stage (yet). He's getting there, though! Max loves being a big brother--and a little brother, too! His favorite playmate is Annie.
Levi (6) is quite the comedian. He always keeps us laughing with funny phrases and silly words. Levi is learning how to sing, and is very rhythmic. He enjoys "playing" along (strumming an invisible guitar) and can strum to the beat!
Abel (5) is our sweet little baby! He loves to sing and enjoys clapping to the beat. Abel loves being cuddled and kissed, and is not very good at playing by himself-- if he finds that he is without a playmate, he wanders around the house trying to get someone to play with him--sometimes he even settles for playing with the dogs if no one else is available.
