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.

This is a simple thing to do. It’s not even really an experiment, just something to do before reading a fact book. We made a KWL chart. That stands for: What I KNOW, What I WANT to know, and What I LEARNED. We did it on two different insects: Here’s what my kids know about […]
