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.



Four friends and I all met at one of our homes (not mine… a larger one was highly necessary!) for lunch yesterday.

One child was missing from the crew. Kid count: 23. The oldest was 9.

Three nine year olds.

Three seven year olds.

One six year old.

Three five year olds.

Three four year olds.

Two three year olds.

Two two year olds.

Two one year olds.

A ten month old.

An eight month old.

A three month old.

A two month old.

My ears were ringing. The noise was deafening. The mess was pretty spectacular.

Afterwards, our hostess offered to keep my kids so I could go shopping by myself.

She’s one incredibly brave lady.

Charlotte came with me. I bought myself some new clothes. It was amazing.

Not quite as amazing as 23 kids in one house for 5 hours, but amazing nonetheless.
