We're Jason, Beth, Lee Anna, Sawyer, and Sarah Claire, a family of five living, learning, and laughing lots in Northern Africa.
We hope you can learn a little (and maybe laugh a little too) as you read about our latest adventures.

Fun Times

Sorry we haven't posted in a while. We've been busy entertaining G.G. (Grandma Gloria) the last 10 days. We had a great time showing her around our new home. She was relieved to find that we're not living in a tent out on the edge of the desert. Here she is enjoying some of our favorite local foods . . .
. . . and taking in some of the sights (some more picturesque than others).

And here's the real reason she came to visit! As much as she loved the food, the people, and the sight-seeing, the highlight of her trip was meeting her new grandson, Sawyer. She also had a blast trying to keep up with Lee Anna all week.

Brave woman that she is, she even volunteered to keep both kids overnight and sent us to a pretty hotel on the river to celebrate our anniversary. It was quite a treat!
We love you, G.G.! Come back soon.

What a great trip....Thanks for letting me enjoy the kids, learn some of your new language, see the great sights, meet many of your new friends, experience a foreign exotic culture, its foods and taxis, and just letting me be a part of your famliy. It was all so exciting. Many many shokrones!!!
