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.


I love my Mummy

I think she will be mummified in time for Halloween. It took the Egyptians 70 days. We are hoping for about the same.
No this is not Anna...but yes, we are often tempted to mummify her. She is trouble.

Yesterday we found her "beaking" up poor little Miriam. (Take notice of her skinny neck missing the feathers. Now we know why.)

Emmett pretended to be brave enough to help. He wasn't.
I love homeschool. In fact, in this time of emotional turmoil, I think it has been my saving grace. It is so comforting to have my children surround me in the home. To feel I am giving them a gift. I fail them in so many ways, I hope at least this enriching, warm environment will be remembered.
