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.

The camera was knocked out of my hand part way through so it gets a bit sketchy at the end.

Fall Festivities


 Farm Fun...

A walk up stream

Spooky Halloween

Only picture I had of Ellery as "Prom Queen"


Spooky food, witch bread sticks and spider tootsie rolls.

I threw an impromptu Halloween Bash.  Over 30 people.  It was wild.




Helped Monica with an awesome 1/2 marathon PR in St. George.
