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.


On Track at Last!

Like a little miracle, Berkeley started eating today (her 17th day on this earth).

She has only been eating for about 5 minutes at each feeding, but she has proved to be quite the efficient little machine, getting everything she needs in just a few minutes. What a blessing given her leisurely personality. The doctors put her on the super fast track for home. If she continues as she is, we will be home Monday afternoon! Hooray.
