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 New House

It is finally official!  We closed on our new home last week and today the transformation begins!

The home is full of light and has a wonderful floor plan.  It sits on over 1/3 of an acre, so we have plenty of outdoor living space.

I've been obsessing into the wee hours of the morning about this house for almost a year now.   It seems a bit surreal to finally be moving forward.  Our neighbors are still living in the house for a week or so, so I still don't have the keys, but work on the outside began today.

I am going to try and chronicle the transformation on our blog.  I cant wait!  I have a strict budget, it will be interesting to have the give and take it will surely require to keep under that number.

Congratulations!!! I'm so excited for you. :) Looks like we're going to be staying in Utah after all (long story), so I'm excited to see it once you get it all done, and it will be fun to see the transformation as you go. Good luck!
