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.


"Drug" stores and "Does"

..."Who knows what a drug store is?"

12 hands shoot into the air instantly....

"It is a place where bad people buy bad stuff"

next child... "Yeah my mom said drugs are bad"

..."Who knows what a 'do si do' is?"

12 hands shoot into the air instantly...

"It is a baby deer."

most heads nod in agreement and deference....that kid must be smart!

Several minutes late 25 children tried to "do si do" with their partner, resulting in lots of dizzy kids and of course several dramatic falls to the ground followed by a contagion of giggles.

The life of a kindergarten teacher. I got quite a kick out of helping in Ellery's class today. If you didn't pick it up they were learning "D." I enjoyed watching Ellery interact. I guess "cling" might be the better word. She never got more than a few inches from our neighbors the twins. It will come.
