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.

Happy Fourth of July


The girls and neighbor Gracie, enjoying the festivities of "Cul de Sac of Fire!"


 "Cul de Sac of Fire" with the neighbors and the Rain Drops

Earlier in the day shooting off our splurge of the Flying Parachute Men

We brought all three 4 wheelers up to my parents.  Here little Robert is enjoying the mini ride.

Emmett and Grandpa mowing the lawn.  I love how my Dad lets Emmett swerve wherever he wants.  

Emmett big heart came directly from my father.  My parents property is so idyllic.  They are never allowed to move!

We didn't get to defend our tournament title, but Brent and Mark and Bruce enjoyed a little peppering.

I love the pics of "grandpa" on the John Deere mower. We have those pics of my dad w/ grand-kids and they're the best. :) I love your parents' yard as well! Especially those aspen trees. Looks like a fun 4th of July.
