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 … keep on reading

I have 15 free minutes. As of the date I'm writing this on March 19, since March 1 I have been out of the house 10 out of the 19 days, and I leave again on Thursday for a baby shower up in Iowa. It would be one thing if it had been one long trip,
In middle school, I took a life skills class. My two big takeaways came from two wildly different activities. First, and the reason I took the course, for two weeks we carried around a sandbag baby. I remember seeing the kids carrying them, and how
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.
Did you hear about the latest crazy YouTube challenge? You know the one where the kids are challenged to film themselves doing (fill in the blank). Or, have you heard about the latest scary video uploaded to YouTube and geared towards kids? You know

Have you seen the cool new thing to teach prayer to Sunday School classes? Prayer stations are all the rage, or at least they are on my Pinterest feed, and I have to admit I rather like adding a tangible element to prayer to help kids focus. My one problem with most prayer station ideas? […]
As we moved through history, we paused in our trek through Mystery of History 2 (affiliate link) to learn more about Romans. There’s a bunch of hands on lessons I wanted the kids to have a chance with, and there was no way we could do that progressing at our normal pace. Side note, you should […]
Andrew Jackson is one of those presidents that I’ve always found amusing and interesting. Partially because he’s a bit rough and tumble, and partially because one of the big things he was famous for happened after the War of 1812 was over. I love this song, it totally cracks me up, the sound quality on […]
You remember how ages and ages ago I asked for recommendations about a starfish activity for kids, and then I lost my camera with the pictures of what we did? Well I found it. Or more accurately, when I made the kids clean out the dog’s toy box of all of their stuff […]
On Friday I talked about the first part of our Mr Bear Mystery, and that part was really more of homeschool math, but this part is all homeschool science. Now we get to the Mr Bear mystery crime lab. Mr Bear Mystery crime lab Printables and materials are from the GEMS Mystery Festival For […]
