All I ever wanted was The Perfect Family…

I dreamed of a  house full of little feet, days spent homeschooling, living and learning together.

A peaceful home on a lovely piece of property with free-range chickens and a big, beautiful, organic garden to supply our family’s needs.

Instead, I ended up with real, live children who often interrupt me, a black thumb, and a chunk of property that no one has time to keep up with.

Welcome to Little Earthling Blog. 

Delicious recipes from scratch for real families with real ingredients.

The best ideas and resources I’ve found during my 20 years of homeschooling. 

Tips on managing a house full of children without being overwhelmed with STUFF.

Using a laundromat can be a great way to catch up on all of your laundry.

Raising a large family is different than raising a typical family. While it meas more of a lot of things (food, laundry, noise) it also means we sometimes require different items. I am a minimalist at heart and will always go for quality over quanity. But I’m also thrify…I am always willing to give a genric brand a try. Here you will find our favorite things. Products we use and love because they work for our large family.
