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.

New wheels. Really, really big wheels.

If you’d ever have told me that at age 28

this would be my dream vehicle

I’d have said you were crazy.

But I love it. Three benches, two bucket seats, and seating for 12. It holds five car seats without complaint, (no shoving required!) and Liberty has her choice of five empty seats.

And it handles like… a really big van.

Woohoo! I'm so excited for you! And... you're only 28?! Hehe, not that you look older, I just thought that you were. ;)
On a slightly different note: the transmission went out on our van on Saturday. I'm back in our car. 3 carseats in the back of a car. :( I took my van for granted!
Enjoy your big wheels.

I'm sorry, Julia! We've replaced a transmission in one of our minivans. So not fun.

Mom, I didn't wash it. It rained. I'm not that good!

Congratulations and welcome to the club! We got ours when our sixth child was born 2 years ago. It is especially fabulous on long road trips.
