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.

What do you see here?

Answer Time:













First, let me say that we didn't intend to create an international game of suspense. I had originally planned to simply write a cute little story about what Lee Anna saw here. Right after I uploaded the picture, however, Sawyer needed his Daddy. So I left the blog the way you saw it yesterday. Before I could get back to it, we started getting emails and comments about it, so we decided to leave folks guessing for a day or two.

The answer is... well, it all depends on your perspective.

Your American eyes probably saw a house with a yard and a family. Most of you from Texas guessed correctly that this is our house in Cleburne. Beth's mom got our friend Rick to paint it for us last Christmas. In Lee Anna's world, however, a house has five or six floors (or 10 or 20) and lots of steps leading to lots of apartments--and no pointy rooftops. (Who needs a slanted roof when it never rains?) She looked at this picture last week and exclaimed: "Pyramids!" We're a lot more likely to come across pyramids here than single-family dwellings with grass in the yard.

Thanks for playing, and tune in next time for "What Do You Smell?"

  1. There's a good story here--I just know it! I'm guessing it's Beth and Jason!!! And Jason is sporting some important colors. :)

  3. Okay, is this a hint that you need something mailed to you? Matt says there is a face of Him in the clouds. Which is it? One of us has to be right!

  7. Hahahaha! I didn't get in on the game but that is pretty funny :-) It was nice to see pointy roofs (is it roofs or rooves like hoof and hooves...oh well) when I got back but I do still miss everything being flat. Don't know how to explain it, I just do. You should check out my latest entry - it really is about smell :-) Much love and happy November!

  9. I recognized the house in Texas...so nice of your family to have it painted...maybe you can continue the tradition of having a painting of each "house" you live in whether it has a pointed roof or is flat. It sounds like Lee Anna is doing a great job with the language...I guess it's easier when you are just beginning to talk. Been thinking of you all with the holidays coming..hope you have many happy days!
