Happy Tuesday Everyone !
It’s been a busy week in the Jung household as we near Graduation in May . Today I sat down and ordered Cap & Gowns and graduation announcements for my son.Yes- even though he goes to an online school they have an actual graduation ceremonies for all of the graduates & parents. It will be a nice experience to remember for all.
It will be strange to have him away from home since hes been schooled at home for the last seven years. Hes room will be empty ? No probably not. One of the biggest complaints I received from others about our school of choice was would he be ready to graduate & would he be ready for college. To answer that question – he was more than ready had great grades & ACT scores which got him many acceptance offers for colleges. He did decide to stay closer to home for college so I am sure he will be home lots .Graduation is May 21 ! So look forward to lots of graduation post coming up in the future. Lisa –

Happy Sunday Morning!
Do you know that there’s something special going on everyday on the calendar. Today’s special day is a great one dedicated to all you that use an eraser – its Eraser Day!
Discovered on this day in 1770 –
an English man named Joseph Priestley officially discovered the erasing properties of Indian rubber – a vegetable gum from North America – and elementary math homework has never been the same.
So today let’s celebrate this great discovery that makes our life easier by knowing if we make a mistake we can just erase it. As a Mom that schools at home this is always a must on the BTS shopping List : Lisa
Tuesday Morning Post :
As most know we school at home through a virtual charter school. And when use the local public school schedule which means we just finished Spring Break. Lots of kids headed out to the beach or vacation but it was a stay at home break for us. But learning did not stop. He’s got two big test coming up – a web design certification ( so he can help Mom) through school & he made it to the state high school rally round. Testing his knowledge in Environmental Science. As with traditional home school we can study & work on projects doing break. But we are off doing the summer. But I have always encouraged some type of learning program during the summer even when he attend public school .Kids forget so much doing the summer and it prepares them for the next year . In elementary its math & reading. In high school its those & summer computer camp.
I know some of my followers /friends are teacher : Your thoughts on the option to school year round with semester break ? Good or Bad ? If I had traditional home-schooled I would have done it. Lisa
So today where back to class : Eng 4 is calling us -another paper to write ! Lisa
** Its National Li bray Workers Day ! So stop bye & Say Thank You!!!
It’s Monday Morning & Back to School ! Just another Manic Monday @ The Jung
Hope you had a great weekend & our outside plan got cancel . Because we had a wet & gray weekend so looking forward to some sunshine. Time for my morning coffee :
Now coffee is a big thing in Louisiana. We all love it and drink it even as kids with lots of cream & sugar. And some of us dont out grow that(Me). Put I still make it in the traditional way my grandmother made it in her old pot. So if you come to visit expect to be served coffee.
- Dark roast coffee ( Community Coffee)
- Drip coffee pot
For every cup of coffee -2 T of coffee . ( in the bottom grind basket). Boil water & pour in the top water basket. The water slowly drip through the whole to the coffee grinds , Then drips down the the bottom container. Slow & tasty.
Community Coffee is a local brand with a large local following you can purchase from there shop @ Community Coffee Shop
Now if we are visiting family in New Orleans – the coffee strong may have chicory & served with hot milk. And served in tiny cups. Lisa

Happy St. Patrick day !
St. Patrick’s Day is the one day a year where everyone is a little bit Irish In fact, almost 12 percent of Americans claim Irish ancestry and over 80 million people worldwide claim an ancestral connection to the auld sod.
I am : Lucky Mc Stumpy !!!
St. Patrick was not Irish
He was, in fact, from Wales.
The shamrock was originally a teaching tool
St. Patrick is said to have used the three leaf plant to explain the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) to the pagan Irish.
Wear blue on St. Patrick’s Day
For many years, blue was the color most often associated with St. Patrick. Green was considered unlucky. St. Patrick’s blue was considered symbolic of Ireland for many centuries and the Irish Presidential Standard is still blue.
It’s another Monday Morning In South Louisiana.And where has my Sun gone. Today’s forecast – Cloudy & in the 40’s . And spring is around the corner.

Tuesday morning & it’s time for school. As most followers know my son attends an online public school chartered by our state. We are finishing our 6th year & he will be graduating this year and on to college. This Saturday he was a member of the Schools high school rally team at our local college. & the school sent out a local teacher to support the team.
What is a High School Rally ? Students are picked by there schools to test at district level and then state in all high school subjects . Not only do the student & school gets recognition but awards are given out to students at both district & state level. My son took top honors in Environmental Science ( hes college major) & is on to state -where scholarships are up for grabs in April.
It;s nice to see his school beat out the brick & mortar schools both private & public. from the school district. I had some grumbles from friends & family when I enrolled him in this school but this show the quality of education he’s getting at home.Looking for a schooling option ? This may work for you- Lisa
