t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Surviving a Road Trip with Kids

Imagine sitting atop a beautiful deck and gazing over the emerald green, sapphire blue hues of Lake Tahoe. That is what I am doing right now.

My camera is broken so I have no way to prove it. I will be lazily enjoying myself here all week. So my blog entries will probably be sparse.

However....we made it here...all 9 1/2 hours. It wasn't too torcherous. Cap Trappers function beautifully in the car. So organized...not falling on the ground....if only I could solve someway to make it so Pip doesn't cover her entire body in marker when I turn my back!

So with the cap trappers, I only had to turn around about every 30 seconds, instead of every ten seconds to be at my children's beck and call. Emmett was surprisingly the easiest traveler of the bunch. He just cooed and slept and pooped. What an angel!

I will try and get this camera fixed to send some pictures, because it is so beautiful here....I want you all to feel jealous :)

Also be sure you buy lots of cap trappers for you summer road trip. It really does allow for survival. And I am only a little bit biased.
