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.
This afternoon Callista and I were enjoying a bowl of hot steamed spinach. Complete with balsamic vinegar. After the final spoonful, a pool of vinegar remained. My crazy little Pip insisted on "drinking the juice." I tried to warn her but she was undaunted. A full swallow proved overwhelming, so she forged ahead using a spoon.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised. This is the same child who drinks vegetable V8 juice, olive juice, and pickle juice like they are KoolAid. But don't be fooled, she can put away candy with the best of them.
