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.

A Milestone for Callista

video

This moment has been far too long in coming. Daddy was gone this morning for a couple hours and I took it upon myself to get Callista riding. We borrowed our neighbors tiny bike to get her going. Within minutes she could do it. Then it was a simple matter of transitioning her onto her own bike, which only took a couple more minutes.

For some reason she has been petrified of this for a year. But today was the day, and like always she did it with gusto! Way to go Callista. We are so proud of you.

The impetus of all this, was our little next door neighbor Cy, who is three just started riding. If he could do it, I knew Callista could too!
