We’re The Hays behind the cleverly named blog:

Making Hays While The Suns Shine



Here you’ll find Mama Bear’s insights on raising a family of four children alongside PapaBear. There will be stories of empowerment and discovery, of simple living, and making magic out of ordinary moments. We are a homeschooling, DIYing, holistic approach kinda family, and we hope we offer you a different kind of perspective on life.




More about our Home
DSCN9113Remember…as far as anyone knows, we’re a nice, normal family, you know, if normal means original and unique.

Ontario, Canada, with its frigid, knee-deep snowy winters, and its steamy, hot- shower summers is home. Our home has been home to many family members before us; our home as witnessed the birth of my grandfather and his sisters, it has embraced their children, and now it is on this corner of the earth where our children are being raised, where our youngest were born. This is a place where our roots run deep and our branches stretch out tall. This is a place that sounds the way my childhood sounded. I can still remember what it felt like when we moved in and my soul took a big ole sigh. This is the place where we can create. Where we can be connected to the earth. Where we can step away from the rushing, whirring world and keep close to our family values of simplicity and togetherness.
