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.


Fishing at Full Circle

We spent a great weekend at Grandma's. The children went fishing twice. Once in the "wild" and another at the neighbor's "stocked" pond. I'm sure you can imagine the differing results.
The kids went to their cousin's school carnival. It was as brutal as school carnivals go. That day-old face painting was over an hour long wait in line.
I learned what a creole was for the first time in my life. Here are the children gathered round my dad's.
In true rookie fashion, my Dad even had a net on a zip-cord attached to the back of his vest. This was intense fishing.

Here Ellery and Brent are reeling one in. We let this one go.
