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.
This is my third mending of Emmett's beloved bear. We are trying to avoid this turing into a "hide" like the last bear. Unfortunately the leather begins to get brittle. But Emmett, your mother will continue to sew up your bear with dental floss as long as I can. It is worth the light up, and love in your eyes. You can be truly grateful for the simple things.
