It’s no accident that boys, noise, toys, and joys are rhyming words. My husband and I were blessed to raise five sons, and we certainly had our share of all of the above. I often thought that God must have chuckled as He looked down at Marcia, raised in the suburbs with one sister, now on a farm with all those boys, not to mention all that dirt. And keeping those hungry guys filled up was a real challenge: every night I was faced with six of them (my hubby included)!

I will be speaking about The Joys of Raising Boys May 15-16 in South Dakota and again in Denver on June 20. If any of you have questions, comments, or stories to pass along, I would love to make them a part of my presentations. Post your thoughts right here or write me directly at I would especially like to hear your insights on the differences between homeschooling boys and girls from those of you who have raised mixed gender families. Thanks!

Blessings to you,

    I will never forget the time you were stranded up in the air in a construction bucket. Or the time the pig escaped your station wagon somewhere around Woodrow. LOL. Great website, Marcia. I love it.
