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.

What’s going on right now!

I have a nine year old daughter. Not too surprisingly we have a lot of various American Girl doll accessories and dolls of varying styles. Only one of the dolls is a REAL American Girl doll. A few years ago we bought her the Caroline doll. I was

Now we are engaged in a great Civil War, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We […]
So, we’re studying farm for two weeks. In My Father’s World you study goats, cows, and horses as three separate weeks, but I’m squishing it all into two weeks. This may end up as three weeks still because of Princess’ surgery this Tuesday, but we’ll see how I’m feeling. I may be ready to move […]
