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.


Where’s all the excitement?

Life seems kind of boring lately. We’re working on wrapping up our school year – Liberty gets a prize for finishing the first subject with her math this week – and nothing else much is going on. Blogs are hard to write when there isn’t something going on.

It hit me. This has been the longest we’ve lived in one house. Pierce is approaching the oldest any of ours have been without having another sibling in the works or already here. In ten years of marriage, we’ve lived in nine houses in four states and had six children. Three of those years have been in this house. The baby is 17 months old and the next one… isn’t. It’s just odd. Life seems boring.

Don’t get me wrong, the days can’t possibly be boring. There’s too many things hollering for attention to be boring. But there isn’t anything exciting either.

Stay tuned. Things can’t stay like this for long. It has never happened.

You could be sitting in your house watching the latest blizzard blow by, filling up your yard with more unwanted snow. At the moment I can't see the barn - and that's not because of the eight foot drift in front of it either, it's because it is blowing so hard, and your grandmother's furnace just went out, again, for the sixth time in two weeks. Wish I were bored!!!!!!Roxanne
