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.

Little Gymnasts...Kind of!

 After 3 months of gymnastics the girls had their first little recreational competition. In September, we started at square one.  I am embarrassed to say the kids couldn't even do cartwheels, and barely a forward roll.
While I don't necessarily think they have a lot of talent, they have both really improved.  They spend a lot of time practicing with Brent in the basement at night.  Never having participated in gymnastics myself, I enjoy watching them develop both strength and grace.  They can even pound out some pushups now.
               

 The shots I tried to capture at the meet didn't turn out, so they showed me their stuff in the basement.

 Both Ellery and Callista were very excited to find out they passed level 1 and get to start level 2 in the New Year.


 

Keep up the good work and the mucus jiggling!
