Blossom School Calendar Wall

Life is sooo crazy! I am behind on practically everything I want to tell you. I almost do not know where to begin and I cannot believe that the year is half over. I guess 2012 has been a bit impersonal on my blog and I’m sorry. We’ve just been sick again and again. Trying to keep up with reviews, much less anything else has been just well, non existent and I apologize. I decided to do a Project Life and that has not gone very far either, but perhaps it will.

Let’s see… In this post I want to update you on Blossom School. I’ve been working pretty hard on our calendar wall, and it is still a work in progress. I’m trying to make this quarter of my quilting den very education friendly for the girls. We’re not going to have a classroom per say, but this ought to do it.

I’m going to let the pictures tell the story mostly. Let’s see other updates… look for a post on the nursery… Um… OrangeBlossom went from standing alone in the end of May to walking at the end of June. She’s got some speed now! AppleBlossom is fully recovered from her adenoid-tonsillectomy! Sinus issues are coming and going and it appears everyone is healthy now, except me. Hah. But on to pictures…

Full view of the school wall. Please ignore the trashcan and pillow form up on my table. My almost toddler likes to eat everything.


Wow… looking at these pictures some things have already changed… so I’ll have to update you on that. First I can tell you is that the clear thumb tacks did not work out with the weather graph. They fell out from too much “use”. I replaced them with clear Command hooks – these are excellent! The blue pocket chart is the Scholastic Standard pocket chart, but now I also have the Scholastic Calendar chart as well to use with things like Calendar Connections and other double sided calendar cards.

The Dots on Chocolate Library Pockets are holding The Story for Little Ones Trading Cards. Each lesson we change to the current card and she loves being able to review the others.

More to come!

  1. I love it! You should totally post this link on the Sonlight boards! Found a great recipe for sidewalk chalk thanks to checking out your links! Looks like you’re having a blast with HS’ing. I think we’re going to start up again in a week and a half. My kids had 6 weeks of vacation and I think any more will be counterproductive for all of us. 🙂

    • What I love is right now AppleBlossom will want to “do school” before even breakfast! That normally involves reading from some sort of Bible whether it is the Family-Time Bible, or The Story for Little Ones or 5-Minute Devotions. Then something to cut and count. She’s singing her ABCs and counting (missing a few here and there) and always explaining to OrangeBlossom what things are. I think as we “really start school” it will be fun. Of course right now there is not a set schedule or anything, but it’s reading reading reading and then some.

  2. That’s awesome! That’s how Noah is too as soon as he gets up. Reading reading reading is the best part and with SL you get to do lots of it!
