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.
Visions of Emmett Idaho (sort of)
Each morning drive to the gym brings Emmett and I past this lovely chemical plant. (Gyms always seem to located in the industrial section of town.) This storage tower immediately elicits from Emmett the following: "Mom it is Emmett, Idaho!" Which inevitably draws a chuckle from me.
On our road trip to Oregon, we passed through a town called Emmett, Idaho. It was monumental for Emmett. Apparently the distinguishing features in his mind were the abundant grain towers. Chemical tower. Grain tower. It's all the same, right? Hmmm.
