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.


In Loving Memory of Papa

Our dear, sweet Papa passed away yesterday March 21st, 2011.  

Our hearts are grieving at the loss we feel.
Missing his tenderness.  
But we are rejoicing as we pour over pictures and sift through our memories.
Wishing we didn't have to wait to see him again. 

We love you Papa.  And will try to live our lives to honor your name.
