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.



Stalking the hen house...waiting for Miriam to emerge and rush in to find the egg. This happens at least 4 times a day. We ended the week with 14 eggs! We gave some away. They are all yours next week EmJ!!

A not-so-horrendously-full "junk jar" this week. But the girls are counting on a huge pay out this week from all the Valentine's festivities!

Angel Emmett, loving the model plane sent to him from Papi. It is the same plane Emmett's Great Grandpa flew in WWII, and this model was actually his. Much to Emmy's chagrin he is not allowed to snuggle with this plane in his crib. Or cart it around by the wing.

I am so jealous. We have 5 chickens (we had to put on down last week because she was so sick) and we get only 2 a day.

Oh, I can't wait! I loved your picture of the yolk comparison. 14 eggs- that is incredible.
