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.


A "Little" Pilates

I try to talk as much as I can about exercise with my children. It is important part of both Brent and my life. But more important than talking is that they see me doing it. One of the reasons we hauled them down to St. George for the marathon. One of the reasons I do pilates on our rug in the morning while they watch PBS cartoons. This morning the girls decided to join in.

Their favorite move: Rolling Like a Ball. They have also been seen attempting the Seal Puppy at times (always a treat).
