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 Small Snippet
Ellery: Ooooh, we get to go to Hawaii!
Jeddy: Cool. My Dad said we were gonna go see my cousins in California again.
J: I think we are going to Texas too.
E: eyes light up...Texas! Hey Jeddy, that is where Alex Jones lives!!
J: Who is Alex Jones?
E: Umm...I don't know.
This gave me quite a chuckle when my six year old spouted off Alex Jones' name and origin. I hadn't realized she was cognizant of our listening to his broadcasts on the internet. But then again, if Alex Jones is on, it is hard not to notice him, even in the background. If you know who he is, you know what I mean :)
Children are always listening!
