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.


Potty talk.

I keep a book of Sudoku puzzles in the bathroom. Don’t judge. Where else am I going to be left alone long enough to make sense of them?

Sterling apparently also enjoys a moment alone in there – with my book. I’m forever finding, “I love you Mom. Sterling” written in the margins. Lately, he’s been writing his own puzzles there too. 4x3, 6x2… not exactly Sudoku rules. I’d written little notes back but left he boxes blank.

Today, there was a new note. “Write numbers here” was written next to the box he’d drawn. So I wrote random numbers in his boxes. He doesn’t know the rules of the puzzle, obviously, so I’m hoping he’ll be happy.

He’s a keeper though. Who else has a five (nearly six!) year old son who leaves love notes for his momma while he relieves himself at the facilities?

That is such a sweet memory to hold. What a precious boy. Hope you're keeping memory books for all those special moments for your children - as if you had the time :-)
