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.

And… he’s off. Pantsless Pierce has a new skill.

Life just got a little more interesting. Pierce went from standing at the bottom of the stairs to scaling them in seconds… and then trying to dismount just as fast. If I accomplish nothing else today, it’s still a success. I caught the baby AND I took photos for the blog.

Never let it be under estimated of the power of sibling influence to want to do as they do. Nice job Pierce! What great conquest is planned next?

Pierce learning to walk would make my life easier. I think. Maybe we should work on dressing the boy completely each day though. He might appreciate it later in life, when he's embarrassed about being half naked all the time... ;)

Kate has figured out that getting down the stairs in one piece is harder, than going up. After taking a few tumbles, she's starting to learn to sit at the top of the steps and whine until someone gets her down!
