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.


Happy half-birthday, Mr. Pierce.

These little toes,


these baby blues,


and this sweet smile


first made their appearance


six months and forty minutes ago.


Quite the little man he’s becoming.

He’s working hard to sit on his own, still all gums and no teeth, blond as can be, and quite opinionated. Nursing between two and six times, every night, growth has not been an issue. Rolling both ways, but, seeing no need to be on the floor long enough to try crawling, he’s still mostly immobile. Temper tantrums he’s perfected, drooling is his hobby, chewing on anything he can grab is his favorite past time. Other than, ahem, eating. He’s not tried anything besides milk thus far, but the end of that one is coming. He’s quite curious about all this eating he sees happening around him and feeling left out that he’s not involved.

Happy half-birthday, littlest man.
