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.

I made my second batch of soap today. Blaine came home to the smell of Cherry Almond Oatmeal soap cooling. (And a pear pie in the oven, but the Cherry Almond was definitely overpowering it.) He thought he’d come home to Butter Letter. He was disappointed.

What kind of spoiled is he that I’ve made a pie and lye bar soap in one afternoon and the man is disappointed?!

Gonna have to get some almond paste. I love that man.

What on earth is Butter Letter? Some east coast thing? Roxanne

Something like this: http://wyckoff.patch.com/blog_posts/butter-letter-a-dutch-christmas-tradition - totally a page from my very-Dutch husband's roots. Definitely a keeper, though. (The husband AND the Butter Letter!)

I love Dutch letters! Only had them once in Pella, IA but certainly left an impression. Can you make almond paste from almond flour? -Michelle
