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.



Meet Belle,


Pierce’s new best friend.


He thinks her skin is looking a little tight though. He’ll help her out with that.


Hold still, puppy. It’ll only hurt for a minute.


There! So much better.

What a great canine you have there! ;-) I'll bet her regular family really misses her.

Thanks so much for providing a loving home for her while we're gone and for posting some photos.

I'll bet they do, too. :) She's getting a grand education in all things little, though. Her patience is commendable.

Thank you so much for your generosity and loving kindness in helping out Shawn and Michelle with Belle! Me and my family cannot thank you enough! We are aware that you have a full house already and pray that you will be blessed. You have blessed each of us by knowing that this is one thing that you have taken on Shawn's mind so that he can focus on his health and that is HUGE!It is such a relief for Shawn to know that he has such good and faithful friends who care so much for him and will give a loving environment for Belle while they are separated! God Bless!
