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.


A tall, tall tale.

My girls heard through the grapevine that, in their words, a young woman from church had been picked up and carried off by an eagle.

I found this out last week when Eden asked me, completely unconcerned but entirely curious,

“Did they ever find her?”

Really? You think an eagle carried a grown woman off, and four days later, the only concern you have is if she’s been located?

Turns out, the whole story was started as a joke.

Turns out, my girls are really, really gullible.

Turns out, we need to work on compassion for our fellow (wo)man.

I’m not sure which part I’m more worried about.

Well, we had a GREAT laugh with that one. A certain young man told my daughters last week that his sister was carried off by an eagle while she was protecting the baby lambs that were just born. (this is an ongoing joke between the girls and this certain brother). This certain young lady was asked by about 3 or 4 people at church how her trip was with the eagle. It is nice to know that your daughters trust adults, but we do need to be careful what we tell them, as they can be very vulnerable to being misled. You have some very wonderful little ladies. I love them.
