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 favorite activity has been weekday nights at the pool. It is half price and no one is there. We love it!
You can't bring in your own snacks, so when Berkeley gets hungary she just gives Brent's toes a little nibble. No biggie.
My neighbor Marie and I walked out of the house to this ingenious combination. The children had dragged the bounce house out of the garage, the house from the backyard, and concocted the funtastic creation. This has provided hours of fun for the entire street.
Way to think outside the box Ellery!
