Hi, welcome to our little corner of the world. I'm Ticia, and I'll be guiding you on this journey here, so let me tell you a little bit about myself, and our life here. I'm a former elementary teacher who decided to stay home with her twins when they were born, daycare would not have made sense on a teacher's salary, besides I'd always wanted to stay home with my kids.

One thing I’m trying to be more intentional with this year is our family life. I’m also increasingly aware my kids are growing older and older before my eyes. How do I have THREE tweens? But, last month I went on a mini golf date night with
You guys know I’m a big fan of hands on homeschool science and I’m always on the lookout for great products. Recently I found out one of my favorite publishers has amazing science experiments books for kids (should it be science experiment books?
Halloween is a contentious subject among homeschoolers, but my kids love to dress up and pretend, so it's a big hit in our family and because of that we've had a lot of Homeschool Halloween lessons. Of course our lessons have become less common as

When researching books for Michigan, I discovered this gem of a tall tale called “Clever Beatrice”. It’s about the cutest books I’ve seen, and one of the few tall tales that’s about a girl. To make matters even better she win the day by outwitting her foes, not by being the prettiest or anything […]
Honestly, I was kind of bleah on the books we got from the library this time. Nothing to truly inspire great projects. So our lapbook for this is rather bland, and forgettable. So, all I have to share with you are lots and lots of animal printables. Nothing exciting, but my kids still love to […]
