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 can’t seem to get anything done around here.

This morning as I finished up in the bathroom after my shower, I noticed the bathroom sink and mirror needed attention. I set out to get the rag to clean the mirror.

I got sidetracked. The rag hangs on the side of the fridge. The fridge is next to the laundry room. I started a load of laundry.

I rearranged under the futon and vacuumed under there to fit my new exercise mats.

I rearranged under my bed and vacuumed under there.

I went through my drawers and closet, purged a bunch of clothes that were just taking up space, and rearranged my closet.

I fed two kids lunch. I did reading lessons with two kids, math lessons with two kids, English lessons with two kids, and ate lunch.

I made supper prep plans. Swept the entire downstairs. Put babies down for naps. Switched laundry.

…and wrote a blog post. Because my bathroom is still dirty.

Some day, I’ll gain the focus my husband possesses for staying on task. It hasn’t happened yet.
