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. When I was teaching I always loved finding hands-on ways to teach a concept, and that continued with my kids when I … keep on reading

What’s going on right now!
I'm still trying to figure out just how this happened, but my boys turn 16 tomorrow. It's weird to think about. After 10 years of birthday posts, I don't have a lot original to say Boys you continue to amaze me with the young men you're
I'm starting to write this as a polar vortex is engulfing the country. It's a bit weird to have weather in the 20s. But, at the least the first week of February has gone well so far. I'm a little curious to see how the rest of the month will
At our most recent small group game day our friends brought their new Christmas game, What Do You Meme? for us to play. It's a great game to play with a giant mob, and the edition we had, the family edition, is kid-friendly. What Do You Meme can be a
Last year I decided to focus on speculative fiction for our assigned reading. One of the final books we read was Hunger Games. I planned out our books for the year over a year earlier, and as we read Hunger Games when the Quarantine was just starting
One thing I love about homeschooling is the wide variety of curriculum choices. If your child isn't thriving with one math curriculum, you can try another. This isn't a choice available for public or private schools because it wouldn't be viable.
Sunday School and Family Discipleship
Our Sunday School class finally moved out of Genesis with Joseph being reunited with his family, and now we’re finally moving on to Exodus and Moses. Specifically today, baby Moses activities. What I learn from baby Moses and how he grows up Moses is a story I love, for several reasons, one of which we’ll […]
Jacob is a fun character…….. One that I find a bit of affinity for. I like trickster characters, and if there’s one thing that describes Jacob, he’s a trickster. When last we saw him in our Sunday School lessons he was running from his brother. Now, Jacob married Rachel and Leah, it’s going to cause […]
“Ol’ Bloo’s” is a fun retelling of “Bremen’s Town Musicians.” If you’re not familiar with the tale, it’s about 4 old animals who are about to be “put out to pasture,” and decide instead decide to take off into the wide world and become traveling musicians. The kids thought it was hilarious, and […]
This past year, I took a different plan for our history lessons, instead of following along with a textbook, I planned out our curriculum based on units. We started this whole thing off a pre-history unit exploring worldview. How you view the world changes your view of world events, and the why behind people’s actions. […]
I don’t know about you, but as my kids get older it becomes more challenging to find a curriculum that stretches them. If you’re anything like me, your kids are not carbon copies of you, and their interests and talents are not the same as you. That’s my challenge with Superman. He wants to be […]
This week we continued our study of broken bones, since we’ve learned how important bones are to our body, and what the different parts of the bone do (when we made our play dough bone model), now it’s time to learn first aid for broken bones. I took inspiration from Angellicscalliwags again, and used her […]
