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.


Thought for today.

When your dear daughter, age eight, finds the recipe for the 9x13 pan of bars she’s been asked to make and she asks if she should make a double or triple batch and acts surprised when informed a single will be plenty… is that when you know your family is approaching the big side of normal?

But all that doubling and tripling has given her some awesome math skills.

That girl needs to come see her grandma so she can bake for us and learn how to 'downsize the recipe'. In fact, I could use that skill as well!
