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 Slight Shifting of the MayFiles

Passion. I have a lot of it. And for my passions, I get intense, driven and focused. I freely admit, my family thinks I am a bit overboard. Maybe even fanatical. But here they are in no specific order...

...My Family
...Eating whole foods
...Eliminating Refined Sugars
...Self Reliance

Lots of my friends and acquaintances become intrigued. Probably because of my intensity. Since my Cap Trappers seem to have hit a huge brick wall...which you probably deduced from the complete absence of mention for months...I am refocusing The MayFiles to document my passions.

I pursue this course with hesitancy. It hints of narcissism. But it also speaks to my Journaling passion. I want my children to share my passions and explore their own...so I am building a guidebook. It should be a fun journey.

It will be even better once I get my camera working again!

I always love hearing your ideas! =) You're my expert on a number of things! I'm sorry to hear about the Cap Trappers. Who knows what next year will bring, right?
