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.

Football is not this boy’s game.

We borrowed Facing the Giants from the library and the kids and I watched it a few nights ago.

We don’t watch any sports around here. Blaine has no interest, neither do I. So when my kids say football or basketball, I check to see. It could very well be soccer or baseball they are looking at. They don’t have a clue.

So we’re watching the movie, it’s all about football, when Sterling had a question.

Why do they do that?”

I said because it is a fun game. The look on his face required a disclaimer.

“I think you have to like being tackled.”

Sterling replied, “Yeah, I think so. I would not like to play football.”

“Nope, I’m pretty certain you' wouldn’t.”

“Not al all, Momma. That does not look like fun.”

Maybe he’ll play baseball. Or run track…
