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.


Sippin' Smoothie Through a Straw

I just love this picture. The little goo bear will put down anything with a passion!

A couple months ago I purchased a new blender. It has made all the difference in our green smoothies and nut milks. I love it. I already have 315 blends on it, according to the counter. Clearly it is getting used!

Brent is our master smoothies maker. It is wonderful. I wake up about 5:20 to workout. By the time I get home around 7 am the kids are up, dressed, and well nourished with an amazing, inventive fruit and vegetable concoction. What are great hubby!

Is he available for rent? J/K, mine does a pretty good job - but they definitely aren't dressed and breakfast is far from being started :)
