Primarily written by Adrienne, a homeschooling mother of seven, ages 10 and under. She chronicles life, laughs, struggles, and lessons learned as she raises a larger-than-most sized family and tries to figure out what she's doing day by day.

With occasional posts, Alexandra, Adrienne's older sister, writes of her ranch life in Nevada and raising four sons, ages 5 and under. Life is never dull and her boys have given her some pretty awesome stories to tell.

Stick around awhile, and you're sure to laugh, nod, smile, be encouraged, and see what life is like with a big (little) family.

Used up the last of my carpet spray cleaner Monday. Started potty training Ruby Tuesday. (Wow, did that come out funny. Leaving it.) Wondered Wednesday if she's too young. Put a diaper on her before bed after no accidents all day (that I found...). She drenched her diaper just minutes later. I think she might actually understand. The holler from Eden when she headed for bed said she gets it all right. Dear Miss Ruby climbed onto Eden's bed to pee. Oh, she gets it. Started Friday out with a definite need for carpet cleaner. Right outside the bathroom. A trip to Walmart for carpet cleaner just got added to the days' plans. I hate potty training.

Had to put Evelyn on codeine the other day. Thought of you and sweet Liberty. :)

Just her talking about how M&Ms taste like graham crackers or something. She was on her way to bed so I didn't see the full effects. I was worried about whether she would wake up to go to the bathroom, though. She did fine.

I can't believe Ruby is old enough to be potty training. Yikes!! That means Joel is right around the corner...how do you potty train a boy?

Get a potty chair with the tallest bump on the front possible. Nothing shorter than three inches. Sterling won't touch himself, or I'd heard have them aim for cheerios. He finally decided last night to hold himself down, just so he could pee on the Elmo potty I'd brought in for Ruby - she can get on Sterling's around the pee guard! Beyond that, Sterling was about as easy as the girls.
