A Place for Everyone....

[Carri's note: I have fixed the link now... sorry for the confusion!]

"I have never been able to handle the noise very well. (Ironic that God gave me nine children and sensitive ears, isn’t it?!) They also stay up later, so I have people around me from the minute I wake up in the morning until the minute I go to sleep at night. We were needing some serious re-visiting of where everyone is in the house when we homeschool. For the sake of my sanity, you know. Those in-patient treatment facilities are way out of the budget..."

Head over to Happy to Be at Home to see this week's installment on large family living!


  1. Another way we are just alike! I am very noise sensitive. It's really only hard when other people's kids are around. They haven't been taught to keep the volume down, so they will be very loud and I just can't think clearly when it's like that!

    Also, your link to Happy to Be at Home doesn't lead to anything. I am looking forward to reading it though! Lisa~

  2. You could always try the silence at dinner times like Susannah Wesley! There are days when I have been tempted...

    I'm having trouble with the link too. Looking forward to reading it later.
