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.


My funny for the day.


Sterling got his first Lego set for his birthday. Guess what I did this morning? I built everything in the book so his little farm would be complete.

Guess what Ruby did? Took them all apart. *Sigh.*

Then, much to my chagrin, Sterling did this:



You see, living where we do, where tie down straps are often viewed as a time-consuming inconvenience, I’ve seen some sights I never hoped to see. Like a tree, under a cow, under a horse, on a trailer headed to town. It’s possible, and if you get there in one piece, you’ll have saved so much time.

Have I ever told you about the bed I had to swerve around on the interstate? Oh yes, bed. Frame, mattress, the whole bit. Tied together… but not down, apparently.

Welcome to the state of Missouri. Great place to live – but watch for flying debris.

South Dakota is litter free and we use tarp straps to hold things down - or wire! Come see us! Roxanne
