From Macho to Mom: a military sergeant’s humorous handbook for surviving being a stay-at-home dad

August 15th, 2014

From Macho to Mom bookJ. Masters is a retired USAF Sgt. SERE Instructor. He spent over 20 years within the strict discipline of the military and he was good at it what he did, more than good really. He was an exceptional member of the United States Air Force. He thrived.

Then came retirement.

J. Masters tried out several professions after retiring from the military, but he never found anything that fit his personality so well as the SERE field. Then his wife, several years his junior, graduated and Masters decided that it was his turn to tackle homemaking and child-rearing full time while she became the bread-winner.

And tackle motherhood he did.

The results of his applying military principles to household life were at times ridiculous, at times fruitless, and, most times, comedic. Day after day, Masters discovered that there was something infinitely more challenging than performing pre-jump checklists and surviving enemy interrogation (no enemy interrogator is quite as effective as a child asking all the whys of the known universe)- housewifery (as he so aptly coined) was the most challenging role he’d ever played.

One day, Masters sat down at his computer- the house finally quiet with the older kids at school and the younger kids napping- and started typing (rambling really). Every day, he penned the hilarity and chaos of household maintenance.

From Macho2Mom, in all its randomness, will have you laughing, crying and truly appreciating the greatness of mothers all over the planet.

Attention K-2 teachers, homeschool groups: apply for Savannah Music Festival’s FREE Musical Explorers program

August 13th, 2014

homeschool resources programs in SavannahTeachers & homeschool groups, have you applied yet for Musical Explorers, Savannah Music Festival’s new partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute?

Musical Explorers has been a huge hit with New York City schools, and in 2014-15 Savannah Music Festival will be the first organization in the nation to adapt Musical Explorers for a community outside of New York.

Deadline to apply has been extended to Mon. Aug. 18. More information on the program and an application for 2014-15 can be found  by clicking here.

Musical Explorers is a K-2 arts education program where students learn about their community, their city, their state and all the diverse musical styles that can be found in Georgia and the southeast. They also learn basic music skills and vocabulary. During the 2014-2015 school year, students explore various music styles including blues, classical, African-American spirituals, jazz, Slave Shouts, and bluegrass, embarking on a musical journey through the cultures found in and around Savannah.

For each genre of music, the students are “introduced” to a local artist, and songs and activities associated with the artist (3 artists per semester, 6 artists total). At the end of each semester, students meet the musicians they’ve learned about in the classroom live on stage, performing the songs from the curriculum in an interactive concert.

Click here watch a brief video, with footage put together by Carnegie Hall, that gives you the teacher’s perspective. (Just imagine your students going to the Lucas Theatre for the concert instead of Carnegie Hall!)

Some more program features:
*Two interactive concerts (fall and spring) per year in downtown Savannah featuring mulitcultural vocalists
*Two professional development workshops for participating teachers (fall and spring)
*An online, interactive Teacher Guide with accompanying musical excerpts, featuring lessons and creative extensions for yearlong coursework, geared toward both music and general classroom teachers
*Online, printable student activities

This program is absolutely free for participating schools!
