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.


Ellery February Recital

Ellery participated in her second recital this afternoon. She has now been studying the piano for 9 months. She played Ode to Joy by Beethoven.

Note to self: Fore go the sparkly shoes at the next recital. They only draw attention to the feet. Clearly, the tendency for bouncing feet has not yet been outgrown!

Ellery with her fantastic teacher Carol Cherry. This has to be the most positive and motivating woman I have ever met. I love listening and learning at the lessons. The way she interacts with Ellery is amazing.
Grandma and Grandpa weren't snowed out this time! They took little Mark and Noelle home. We will miss them.

Love the picture with all the grandkids with Grandpa, so sweet! I so can't wait to buy a piano off craigs list so Savannah and I can take lessons and practice at home!

So sweet! Your investment you made last year is really paying off.

Great job on getting those blankets done for Disney tickets. I hurried and signed us up to tie some fleece blankets - that is much more within my comfort zone.

The bidet is called the Bidanit made by a company named Bidanco. It was $29.95 plus free shipping from Amazon, and it really does work!
