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 little "bling" for Berkeley.
This is my attempt at improvising ways to keep her cannula in place, when I realized we were out of tender grips.

I have a very talented friend Carlie, who makes and sells these darling accessories for little girls. Baby Bintz. If you are in the market, head for her website.

I find I have zero time to blog during the week. This week we headed to the Bingham Copper Mines. It was almost unbelievable, the massive size of this open pit mine, the largest in the world. The children were fascinated. They wanted to read every plaque and even watch the informational video twice. We spent almost 2 hours there. Unfortunately, I brought my camera but left the battery.
