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!
Hi! Future Ticia 2023 here, I was sitting down about to write down our Archimedes lesson from a few years ago. I started to create a draft and thought, "I thought I had already written about Archimedes, maybe I should double-check this," and sure
Jesus feeds the 5000
Future Ticia 2023, I'm updating this post to just be Jesus Feeds the 5000 Unit, because I've recently finished it, and I'm super happy to add this to my Bible lesson. But I'm leaving in the rather random story I included of how everything went
Cthulhu Death May Die game review
Okay, every time I type up this game name, I have to double-check my spelling of Cthulhu because I always am sure I've spelled it wrong. Cthulhu Death May Die has been played heavily by my family for the past three months. Maybe even more, it's been
50 State Study: Kentucky
Kentucky was a fun state, and I enjoyed getting to watch some of the Kentucky Derby videos while we were studying it. Hi! Future Ticia 2023, we just redid our Kentucky Unit, just a quick overviews so the kids could remember everything we learned, so
This Bolivia Unit made a great geography lesson for us. (there are affiliate links in here) Bolivia Unit resources Here you go. Not so many resources but I did find some fun Bolivia fact sites. Seriously, the titles people come up
Sunday School and Family Discipleship
Cain and Abel sensory bin
When I was planning my Bible lessons, I figured out I had 104 lessons over two years, subtract 12 lessons for Christmas and Easter each year, and that made 92 lessons. That meant I combined the Fall of Man and Cain and Abel lessons into one UBER Fall of Man lesson. Now as I’m working […]
Frog stuffie pattern for Plague of Frogs game!
Sometimes your Sunday School lesson needs a fun and silly game, like with the Plagues story from our Moses unit. I wanted a plague of frogs game, so I made a frog stuffie pattern so I could have lots and lots of frogs. LOTS of frog stuffies. Soooo……… My wonderful picture of the kids playing […]
Tabernacle lesson: How does the tabernacle point to Christ?
I love when things work out perfectly. I’ve been working on getting a tabernacle lesson together for our Sunday School lesson, and due to one thing or another I didn’t get it done in time for it to be chronological for our Bible studies, but in homeschool HISTORY when I looked at the schedule […]
How to Mummify a chicken
Or as my husband likes to call it, the undead chicken. My family has a weird sense of humor. But, in all seriousness, as I update this post 5 years later, this has made for one of our most memorable homeschool history lessons. When we cover Mystery of History 1 again, I plan to do […]
Science Sunday: Kid led experiment
This is one of those experiments that my kids came up with all on their own. They wanted to do a “speriment,” and they were quite determined we needed to do one. Supplies (as envisioned by Batman): one watermelon emptied out of stuff; that white stuff that makes things explode (baking soda), pickle juice, […]
Science Sunday: Experiments with burned cookies
I loved all of the suggestions I got last Sunday for what to do, and I agreed looking into irreversible change was a great idea, and then I introduced the concept: Me: When we get home we’re going to figure out how to unburn the cookies I burned. Princess: Mooooom, you can’t do […]
