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.

If you give a mouse a cookie…

A good closet cleanout always produces a pile of castoffs.

A pile of castoffs requires a bit of creativity.

Creativity creates a good project.

One project requires another.

And another.

And another.

And another.

And pretty soon, that pile of castoffs, combined with raiding Grandma’s for unworn T-shirts, and you find yourself with four little girls in remade t-shirt skirts.

I think I should clean out Blaine’s closet next. You never know, I might find something to make a more masculine project for the boys.

P.s. Can you tell which dear daughter has just a bit more sass than all the others, both in the photos and in her color choices?

Love, love LOVE these! Can you share the tutorial, or did you just make it up?!

I made them up. They were really simple though. I should make another just for photos. I can send directions or make another and write a tutorial. Preference?
