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.

Reflections

Maybe we should call this the "Ellery Brag Board" lately. But she came home with more great news. She was chosen as a Reflections Art Contest winner from her Elementary school. With over 468 entries she was chosen as one of the top five in visual arts.

The theme was "Beauty is..." I think her quote was: "Beauty is fuzzy bunnies. Soft bunnies. Cute bunnies. I love bunnies." I was hoping should would say something more profound but clearly the judges understood this was straight from the mouth and hands of a 6 year old.

Ellery did a series of 5 prints of bunny rabbits.
