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.


It was awful quiet in there.

I’ve been busy with the kitchen cupboards. Charlotte must have been feeling ignored.

She did a little artwork with a red marker. On the coffee table, on the furniture, on the couch. She was destroyed when I had to inform her in no uncertain terms that I did not like her drawings.

Never fear, though. All we keep around here are Crayola. It’ll wash.

Today’s wash dictates otherwise.

You know those dry erase markers, kept in the kitchen drawer, out of reach of littles?

They aren’t in the drawer. The drawer is in the shop, being painted.

They are in a basket in the kitchen. On the floor.

Except the red one. That one’s up and missing.

Anyone have a good trick for making permanent less permanent? Shout, Tide, Lestoil… I’m plumb out of tricks. My couch begs for your help.

Wish I had seen this when you were looking for ideas but I was camping. The best removal for dry erase markers (and latex paint) is rubbing alcohol. Hope you got it lighter if not out.
