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.


All in the Family

My fabulous big sister Charlotte had a baby number six a week ago Monday night. We were lucky enough to have Grandma and Grandpa drive Mark (5) and Noelle (3) down on Emmetts birthday to spend this week with us.

I only locked all the children in the chicken run once...

And I didn't force Markie to vacuum all day...

We have had a fabulous, very busy week with these two delightful little cousins. They were sweet and as easy as pie for six days. We will miss them so much when they leave tomorrow. But I know their Mom misses them lots more! Thanks for sharing with us Char.
