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.


The Dentist

Ellery timid and cracked just enough

Callista eager and open like a fly trap!

Look closely at the mouths in these pictures. When the hygienist said "Open wide" Ellery's mouth barely opened a crack. Pip's...as wide as she could possibly open it.

Two little girls. So different. I see glimmers of myself in each of them....when Ellery bursts out suddenly with a loud "AHHGG!" after quietly trying to get the puzzle just right...when Pip wildly jumps off the zipline...zero inhibitions....

Now my little Emmett...he is too much of angel...that must have come from Brent!

Stanley M. Smyka D.D.S.is a great dentist. He is, as others have mentioned, a one-man army here. He takes appointments, checks you in, does all the work without an assistant, and checks you out and sends you your reminder card get from Stanley Smyka DDS website...
