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.

Fun, such fun.

Many weeks ago, we all were sick – except Sterling. We seem to be revisiting those germs. It all started last night, when, amazingly enough, we were driving home in separate vehicles and I had the one without kids. But I heard about it when we all got home. Apparently Liberty recognized Ruby’s traditional pre-puke cough in the van, and they got out in time. Whew. I just washed that car seat. Since Ruby’s a car-sick queen, we didn’t think much of it. But when she lost her breakfast this morning, things were looking suspicious. And now, I’ve got it. Eww. So much for today’s List.

Sterling got his K4 books in the mail yesterday. He’s thrilled and I’m schooling from the couch, trying to capture his enthusiasm. I’m amazed to learn the boy can trace lines with amazing accuracy and stay in the lines. quite well. I got out the tote of coloring books in hopes of keeping the kids entertained for my nap. Entertained, yes. Eager to show Momma what they did? Again, yes. So much for that nap.

Bummer. Sorry. How do you function like that? If I'm sick to my stomach I go to bed and NO ONE is allowed to see me unless they are checking to make sure I'm still alive.

When Blaine's at work and there are 5 kids milling about, I don't get to go to bed, unfortunately.
I did spend the majority of the day on the couch and the kids watched a movie for the first time this month. Liberty and Eden made lunch and now today we're trying to get the house back into shape. It's not pretty.
